Eighteen Summer Grads Receive 
Degrees At September Exercises 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of the college, conferred eighteen degrees to 
Lebanon Valley students in the audio-visual room of the Gossard Memorial Library, 
Friday, September 2. 

Assisting Dr. Miller was Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart, dean of the college, who also 
delivered a brief commencement address. Ralph S. Shay, chairman of the depart- 
ment of history, served as marshal for the occasion in place of Dr. George G. 
Struble, who had not yet returned from Europe. The Rev. Bruce C. Souders, director 
of public relations, assumed the duties of college chaplain in the program. 
A luncheon for the graduates, their 

families, and the college staff members 
who participated in the program followed 
the commencement exercises. 

The graduates are Edward J. Alexan- 
der, Lebanon; Douglas Beane, Harris- 
burg; Samuel E. Butz, Chambersburg; 
Joseph B. Dietz, Pottstown; Ronald P. 
Hovis, Lancaster; Marianne A. Kanoff, 
Harrisburg; Cyril J. Kardos, Vander- 
grift; C. Thomas Mau, Aldan; and 
Douglas Miller, Millersburg. 

Also graduated were Nancy L. Nickell, 
Philadelphia; Paul H. Radcliffe, Leba- 
non; Bruce R. Rismiller, Mahanoy City; 
Kenneth J. Seaman, Palmyra; Frederic 
Vespe, Astoria; David L. Weiser, Harris- 
burg; Chester L. Wertsch, Lititz; and 
Ray Wise, Cornwall. 

Pot Sci Club Will 
Conduct Election 

The Political Science Club has set up 
a committee headed by Ronald Bell to 
organize an election on campus. 

The club will act as an election board 
and committee for fair campaign prac- 
tices, and will remain bi-partisan through- 
out the campaign. 

Debates, forums and speeches will be 
arranged between the two opposing or- 
ganizations on Campus, "Youth for 
Nixon" and "College Students for Ken- 
nedy and Johnson." These activities are 
intended to stir political interest at LVC; 
the Political Science Club invites all stu- 
dents to participate. 

Elaine J. Walter 
Will Enter USN 
Officer Training 

Elaine Walter, a senior in the depart- 
ment of biology, recently received word 
of her selection by the U. S. Navy to 
enter its Officer Candidate School for 
Women upon graduation from LVC. 

At that time she will be commissioned 
as an ensign and will serve on active 
duty for two years. Elaine was chosen 
after attending the Navy's College Junior 
Program this past summer at Newport, 
Rhode Island, where she reported on 
July 5 for eight weeks of training. 
. As an officer candidate, Elaine will 
receive concentrated instruction in Navy 
customs and courtesies, mission and or- 
ganization of the Navy, personnel ad- 
ministration, military drill, and other 
fields of Navy endeavor. 

Graduate Fellowship 
Offered Top Seniors 

The need for highly qualified college 
teachers in America presents one of to- 
day's most pressing problems. 

The Woodrow Wilson National Fel- 
lowships provide a partial solution to 
this problem. Each year they fully sup- 
port a thousand carefully selected men 
and women in their first year of gradu- 
ate work, primarily those in the human- 
ities and social sciences. 

Eligible for nomination are outstand- 
ing college seniors and graduates who 
by the fall of 1961 will have accumu- 
lated less than a year's graduate credit. 
A candidate must be nominated by a 
faculty member no later than October 
31, 1960. 

His information form and all support- 
ing materials must be received by the 
regional chairman no later than Novem- 
ber 20, 1960. Interviews are made in 
January and announcements of the 
awards are made before March 15, 1961. 

Dramatics Club Plans 
Three For The Show** 

The Wig and Buckle Club, Lebanon 
Valley's dramatics club, is preparing its 
first production of the season, a series of 
three one-act plays to be seen in Engle 
Hall Saturday, October 15 (LVC Day). 

To be entitled "Three for the Show, 
Volume II," the program will include 
Susan Glaspell's "Suppressed Desires," 
Gian Carlo Menotti's opera, "The Tele- 
phone," and Edna St. Vincent Millay's 
"Aria da Capo." For the convenience of 
students, the dress rehearsal Friday night, 
October 14, at 8:00 p.m. will be open to 
the public, at a cost of $.50 per person. 

This open rehearsal will include all the 
features of the actual performance, 
which will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Satur- 
day, with reserved seats selling at $1.00. 
Tickets are available from any Wig and 
Buckle member and at the door the night 
of the performance. 

Final tryouts for these plays were held 
at the organization's first meeting Sep- 
tember 20. Judy Cassel, '64, will make 
her LVC debut in "Suppressed Desires," 
a comedy-satire on psychoanalysis which 
also features Mary Louise Lamke and 
George Smith. Doris Kohl and William 
Nixon will star in "The Telephone," as- 
sisted by Dick Rotz at the piano. 

"Aria da Capo," first presented by Wig 
and Buckle last year, will be performed 
by the original cast, including Miss 
Lamke, James Kline, George Hiltner, 
Bill Reighter and George Smith. 

Women's Resident Hall 
Proceeds As Scheduled 

Construction of Vickroy Hall, the new 
women's dormitory, is proceeding ac- 
cording to schedule and should be com- 
pleted by September, 1961, in time for 
the fall semester. 

The dormitory is being erected on the 
site formerly occupied by the college in- 
firmary. There will be facilities for 122 
women and a head resident. The floor 
plan is similar to that of Mary Capp 
Green; however, lounges and the recep- 
tion desk are to be located in the base- 

Double rooms of a modern decor will 
feature sliding windows and built-in fur- 
niture. The dormitory will be electric- 
ally heated. 

Replacing the old infirmary is the dou- 
ble house recently installed facing West 
Hall, to the rear of the College Dining 

Placement Publication 
Available To Seniors 

The 1961 edition of the College 
Placement Annual will be available to 
seniors October 1, in the Student-Person- 
nel Office. 

The Annual contains listings of job op- 
portunities available from more than 
1800 employers. Included in the publi- 
cation are sections on training programs, 
letter writing, and the placement service

worked on his Ph. D. Dr. Griswold says 
that he likes Lebanon Vajley, and Penn- 
sylvania "very, very much" and that .he 
is greatly impressed by both the students 
and the faculty here at Valley. 

In the second quarter, LVC started a 
61 yard march on their own 39. The 
drive featured the running and passing 
of Les Holstein, senior left halfback. 
Holstein went over from the one to cli- 
max the drive. An extra point was added 
on a placement by co-captain Dave 
Miller. The first half ended with Wilkes 
on the LVC 27 yard line, their furthest 
penetration, and the score 7-0, LVC win- 

The second half opened with Wilkes 
taking the kickoff and driving to the 
LVC 29 yard line before being held by 
the LVC defense. Upon regaining the 
ball, Wilkes began another march featur- 
ing the bull-like rushes of fullback Mar- 
vin Antinnes. The attack was halted on 
the five yard line when Vance Stouffer 
slashed through the Wilkes forward wall 
to bring Wilkes quarterback Frank Spudis 
down for a 5 yard loss.

Freshmen Express Opinions 
About First Week Activities 

by Connie Myers 


The arrival of a new freshman class 
at Lebanon Valley is as magic a social 
event as the opening of a symphony in 
Boston. In an effort to help the neonate 
Valleyite adjust to campus life, the cabi- 
net members of 
the Student Chris- 
tian Association, 
the faculty, Facul- 
ty-Student Council 
and various cam- 
pus organizations 
plan a week of ac- 
tivities designed to 
help even the 
greenest freshman 
to mingle, mingle, mingle. 

This year Freshman Week opened with 
a get-acquainted party in the gym on 
Sunday evening, September 10. It was 
followed on Monday night by a recep- 
tion in the college church and on Tues- 
day by a square dance in the gym. Wed- 
nesday evening's featured event was the 
traditional hike to Fink's Park with fre- 
quent changing of partners en route. 

Thursday was an evening of rest in 
preparation for the two events of Friday 
evening — the SCA skit in Engle Hall fol- 
lowed by the newly instituted "meet the 
faculty" reception in the College 
Lounge. Student-Faculty Council spon- 
sored Saturday night's dance at which 
exhibits by various campus organizations 
were featured. Much planning and hard 
work went into the preparation of these 

Their purpose was to reduce the 
strangeness of college by helping the new 
students to meet each other, upperclass- 
men, and faculty members in interesting 
and enjoyable ways. A brief examina- 
tion of some freshmen's views may give 

an idea of the success of this year's pro- 
gram and some helpful pointers for con- 
sideration when planning next year's. 

Carole Jiminez and Dolores Mallery: 
"We enjoyed Freshman Week, especially 
the hike. However the square dance was 
sort of a flop, because the boys stayed 
mainly on one side, the girls on another 
side. Perhaps the square dance should 
have been held after the hike when we 
knew more people. The skit — even 
though we didn't recognize all the 'facul- 
ty' — and Saturday's dance were very 
good features." 

Chuck Ebersole: "The hike presented 
one with too many names at once, but 
the program following dinner at Fink's 
Park was very good. I really enjoyed the 

Judy Cassell: "I liked the hike best. 
It was well-planned and the moving line 
was a good idea to help us meet people. 
However, the first night's get-acquainted 
party in the gym seemed unorganized 
and slow moving. It needed something 
to pep it up as did the square dance. 
Perhaps the latter should have been 
based on lively modern dances like the 
cha-cha instead of square dances. The 
"meeting-the-faculty" reception might 
have been more successful, too, if it 
had been held in a larger area with the 
faculty more clearly identified. Saturday 
night's faculty reception line, displays, 
and dance were really well-handled. The 
band sounded professional." 

Tom Overly: "I enjoyed it all. At the 
"meet the faculty" reception I met more 
students than faculty, but still think it 
was a good idea to have such a gather- 
ing. The Student-Faculty dance was the 
best event of the week." 

Hat Hubbub 

Why does Lebanon Valley have an or- 
ganization known as the White Hats? 

The answer seems obvious enough: 
last year's freshman initiation was poorly 
handled. It accomplished few of the ob- 
jectives of such a program, and a super- 
ior method was deemed necessary. 

The White Hats were created, pattern- 
ed after similar groups on other cam- 
puses. They were installed by the Presi- 
dent of the College and charged with the 
task formerly undertaken by the sopho- 
more class. 

They had a statement of purpose, and 
objectives to be met, for the good of the 
freshman class and the school as a 
whole. Their main concern should have 
been the successful attainment of their 

The main concern of some members, 
however, seems to be the maintenance of 
their own prestige. 

Why else have members of the staff of 
this publication been annoyed by White 
Hats in the hope that they would reveal 
the contents of this paper before it was 
made public to the whole student body? 

Are the Hats afraid there might be a 
letter or two with some unfavorable 

To be right is not always to be popu- 
lar. However, any active group in any 
area of college life should not fear pub- 
lic opinion if their actions coincide with 
their stated objectives. 

Below in this column there appears 
a letter which -we feel is justified (al- 
though it would have appeared in print 
despite the personal opinions of the edi- 
tors). When several regularly scheduled 
meetings are disrupted because rain in- 
terrupted Frosh Frolics, resentment to- 
ward the White Hats is understandable. 
A closer scrutiny of the college calendar 
was in order. 

So far the Hats have done a reason- 
ably good job, although the upperclass 
members of the group may lack the fer- 
vor and relish for the sport that an all- 
sophomore committee might show. They 
hold their own version of the Nuremberg 
War Trials and everyone is reasonably 

Yet there is no doubt that this edi- 
torial will be read with some trepidation 
in certain areas. 

Why do the Hats fear any adverse 
public reaction? 

Perhaps freshman welfare plays sec- 
ond fiddle to the respect and admiration 
the White Hats hope to receive for then- 
efforts. How about it, Hats? (PHR). 

Letters To La Vie 

Questions Purity 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

September is here again, and as in 
years past I trod the walks which amble 
about our campus. I see and hear the 
same things as in years gone by, the 
smoke from the heating plant, the music 
from the conserv, and most of all I see 
the dinks. 

But what is this new sight I see be- 
fore my eyes? It is white, the symbol of 
purity, yet it does not follow this course. 
It bears the torch of freedom, yet it sub- 
jugates people to its will. I ask myself, 
what is this . . . this thing that stands as 
both judge and jury over the dink? 

No longer is it a class that rules the 
freshmen, but a hat, a hat which by its 
very color and emblem stands for good 
and justice; yet its actions stand for op- 
pression and tyranny. 

Can this be true or do my eyes de- 
ceive me? No longer is it the word 
"sophomore" which brings terror into a 
freshman's heart. Now the cry which 
makes them tremble is "White Hat." 

The Denizen 
* * • » 

Considers Hats Unfair 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

Perhaps it is unfair to start out the 
year criticizing our newest campus or- 
ganization, but it seems the White Hats 
are taking a little too much for granted. 
On September 19, the first Frosh Frolics 
of the year were cancelled because of 
rain. The next evening, it was announced 
at the evening meal that these frolics 
would take place in one hour's time, at 
7:00 p.m. 

Under Construction 

The Class of '64 was greeted at LVC by the sounds of hammers, saws, picks 
and shovels of workmen completing the power station behind the freshman men's 
dorm and laying the foundation for the new Vickroy Hall dorm for women. Dyna- 
mite being used in the latter project was functional in keeping the frosh alert during 
Freshman Week as they concentrated on test after test in Engle Hall. 

Let us say that the dynamite necessary for the beginning of a building is rep- 
resentative of dynamic changes and beginnings throughout campus life. The 
foundations for the '62 yearbook are underway; explosions of ideas are taking 
place within every organization as the members plan for the year's activities; the 
cornerstone of a successful football season has been laid; and student teachers are 
venturing forth in hopes that their college courses will be steel girders supporting 
their performance. 

All of us face college work ever new to us; we need to build worthy study 
habits. The resident women's government, having engineered the revision of its 
rule book, will function anew in cooperation with the other governing bodies for 
the safety and well-being of the students they supervise. The White Hats, whose 
efforts are materializing from last year's blueprints, are striving to prove them- 
selves effective so as to make their initiation idea a traditional campus institution. 

This year's Student-Faculty Council, in directing its budgeting of the Student 
Activities Fee, has attempted to exercise strict fairness in distributing funds accord- 
ing to the needs of the organizations concerned. Extras — latticework on the struc- 
tures of organizational projects — must come from the enterprise of the club itself 
when possible. 

Freshmen were introduced to the coming plans and projects of the various 
campus groups at the Student-Faculty Dance during Freshman Week. The very 
existence of the displays shown there indicates a certain foresight and endeavor 
already begun; hopefully, this blueprint activity will be realized during the year in 
the form of worthwhile events and programs. 

One of the biggest beginnings, destined to have far-reaching effects, is the 
establishment of the new and diversified curriculum in which the Class of '64 is the 
first to participate. LVC seems to be cooperating with the liberal arts view of 
building a world of men and women proficient in a major field, but cementing the 
various fields into a workable, cooperative society with the mortar of liberal 

As the school year begins, and the innovations mentioned are just beginning to 
take form, skeptics may say as one observer of the new dormitory construction 
quipped, "Gee, they're building a hole!" It behooves us, however, to add our own 
efforts to those of other workers in whatever project with which we may be affili- 
ated, and help promote the finished product. 

We salute those on our campus who are building, whether they are con- 
structing a residence hall or a course outline, a yearbook or a program committee, 
a career or a study schedule. Growth and change are the essence of life, and it 
is encouraging to witness it at LVC. (JMK) 

Our Present Political System 
Is Result Of Years Of Change 

Who'll be the next President of the United States? This is the question on mil- 
lions of minds now, but few people today realize how different the question was 
in 1887. Then, at the Constitutional Convention, one hotly debated question was 
this: should we have a President? 

Many of the delegates were afraid that a single chief executive would have 
altogether too many chances to turn himself into a dictator, and favored the estab- 
lishment of a three-man executive committee to carry out the will of the Legisla- 

All seniors contemplating applying 
to graduate schools and particularly 
those interested in securing fellow- 
ships may obtain advance information 
of the opportunities offered by such 
schools from the office of the Dean 
of Men. 

Although all students are urged to 
contact their major advisers whenever 
possible, this service should be viewed 
as an opportunity for ALL students 
to discover the variety of aids avail- 
able to qualified applicants. 

The college calendar for that evening 
carried four events scheduled for that 
hour, three of which would involve 
freshmen. I also understand that your 
own publication was planning an organi- 
zational meeting for that time. 

Nevertheless, the White Hats pre- 
empted this time period with one hour's 
notice, forcing these other organizations 
to reschedule their meetings or exclude 
prospective freshman members. 

Perhaps the college needed a new ini- 
tiation program after last year's fiasco, 
but no organization should be allowed to 
upset the planned schedules of others. 
The Hats may dictate the frosh, but to 
the upperclassmen they are no more 
than equals. 

Disgusted Club Member 

remember.., ONLY YOU CAN 


The most important reason why sup- 
porters of a one-man executive finally 
won out may well have been that every- 
body was sure that George Washington, 
whom all the delegates knew and trusted, 
would get the job. 

Washington thought he had his hands 
full as President of a 13-state U.S.A. 
with a population of 3.9 million. "These 
public meetings with reference to and 
from different departments of state are 
as much if not more than I am able to 
undergo," he wrote in 1790. 

But over the past 170 years, the Presi- 
dent's job has grown as fast as the U. S. 
itself. Washington during a typical year 
of his administration, signed 44 laws and 
one executive ordelr; President Eisen- 
hower is maintaining an average of 944 
laws and 60 executive orders a year. 

Washington granted nine pardons and 
gave Federal jobs to 65 people in 1791; 
Ike has averaged an annual 112 pardons 
and 43,537 jobs (including military and 
Post Office appointments). Washing- 
ton's first budget was written on a single 
sheet of paper; the current Eisenhower 
budget runs to 1030 pages, with a 188- 
page appendix. 

Today's President holds down not one 
job, but five, and any one of the five 
could fill an eight-hour day. He is Head 
of State, Commander-in-Chief of the 
armed forces, chief legislative policy 
maker, Chief Executive and the head of 
his political party. 

The way we choose the man to do this 
staggeringly big job has changed as 
much as the job itself. The Constitution 
originally provided for election of the 
President by electors from each state, to 
be chosen "in a manner prescribed by the 
state legislatures," each of whom would 
vote for two men. The one receiving 
the highest number of votes would be 
President, the runner-up Vice President.

This election year has given birth to 
an organization on campus known as 
"College Students for Kennedy and 
Johnson," also called the "Circle-K." 

The group has set up its headquarters 
on the second floor of the college lounge. 
From there its operations will be directed 
by co-chairmen Bob Hartnett and Jim 

An advisory committee has been estab- 
lished, consisting of Barry Danfelt, Bill 
Rigler and Greg Stanson on the dorm 
student division, and Ellis Wolfe, Dale 
Chernich and James Dressel on the day 
student division. 

The purpose of the organization will 
be to advise persons of voting age on 
the laws in their state for absentee bal- 
lots; to enlighten the electorate on the 
Democratic Party's stand on issues; and 
help in any way possible to stimulate in- 
terest in the presidential election. 
What About Absentee Voting? 

In accordance with the purposes ol 
the group, the Circle-K makes the fol- 
lowing announcement: 

Any college student who is registered 
may vote in the coming election if he ob- 
tains an absentee ballot from the election 
board of his county. This may be done 
by writing a letter to his county board 
requesting an application for such a bal- 
lot. I 

In order to facilitate this the LVC 
"College Students for Kennedy and 
Johnson" will make available to any 
registered voter a postcard which can be 
used for the purpose. Anyone wishing 
to obtain such a postcard should contact 
any Circle-K member. 

Dr. Bissinger Announces 
Math Dept. Events 

Dr. Barnard Bissinger, chairman of the 
department of mathematics, announces 
the largest enrollment of mathematics 
majors in the history of the college. 50 
students of math and engineering, 30 of 
them freshmen, demonstrate a growing 
interest in those fields. 

Wagner To Give Evening Lectures 

A series of night lectures will be pre- 
sented this year by Mr. Robert J. Wag- 
ner, assistant professor of mathematics, 
who has returned from a year's leave of 
absence for purposes of study. 

Mr. Wagner will lecture on modern 
mathematics. Math 11 (Calculus) stu- 
dents are urged to attend as many of these 
evening sessions as possible. Eight lec- 
tures will be presented, with four per 
semester. Copies of the talks will be 
available in limited numbers. 

Bissinger Holds Bi-Monthly Lectures 

The mathematics and science teachers 
of Lebanon County have chosen Dr. Bar- 
nard Bissinger to speak on modern math- 
ematics every other week throughout the 
academic year. The lectures will stress 
the need for logic and set-theoretic think- 
ing in the teaching of theory and in the 
solving of problems. Lectures will take 
place in the Lebanon High School. 
Navy Research Contract Forthcoming 

A research contract, already signed by 
the Secretary of the Navy, will shortly 
be received by the LVC math depart- 
ment for research in statistical aspects 
of inventory control. A future announce- 
ment concerning this contract and its 
implications for LVC will be given in a 
later issue of La Vie.

Valley Frois Attend 
IM.I. Ciiem Meeting 

I'roiessors rseiuig ana jnonniger weie 
delegates to the Ustn National Meeting 
of tne American Chemical Society in 
Mew York, the week of September 12. 

Dr. Neidigs time was mainly occu- 
pied with work on the writing of a lab- 
oratory manual and textbook for the 
chemical Bond Approach Committee. 
Ihis committee is sponsored by the Na- 
tional Science Foundation and is con- 
cerned mainly with the teaching of high 
school chemistry. 

Dr. Hollinger attended a three-day 
symposium on theoretical chemistry. He 
co-authored a paper, entitled "The Ki- 
netic Theory of Dense Gases," which 
was presented at the symposium by C. 
V. Curtis. This work is based on a part 
of Dr. Hollinger's doctoral thesis. 

Prof. Tom Presents 
Projects At Seminar 

Mr. C. F. Joseph Tom, one of the ten 
recipients of the Ford Foundation Fel- 
lowship in Economics, presented two 
economic projects for discussion in a 
Faculty. Research Seminar in Eco- 
nomics at the Wharton School of Fi- 
nance and Commerce, the University of 
Pennsylvania, June 20 to August 12, 

Other participants in the program in- 
cluded representatives from Drew Uni- 
versity, Wilkes College, Swarthmore Col- 
lege, Marian College, St. Francis Col- 
lege, and Lafayette College. 

The first subject, "The Progressional 
Marginal Utility Theory of Optimum 
Allocation of Consumer's Expenditure," 
is an attempt to develop a theory of op- 
timum allocation of consumed expendi- 
ture without the usual difficulties con- 
nected with the conventional marginal 
utility approach and with the controversy 
over the ordinal and cardinal concept of 

The second project deals with the 
problem of labor allocation and eco- 
nomic growth in Red China. Based on 
the analysis as developed in this project, 
the theory may be used to explain, at 
least partially, why the rate of economic 
growth in Red China during the past 
ten years has been faster than the rate of 
economic growth in India. 

Former Mission Worker 
Addresses Student Body 

The Rev. Calvin H. Reber, Jr., a pro- 
fessor of Christian missions at United 
Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, 
was the first guest chapel speaker at 
Valley this semester, on September 20. 

A graduate of Lebanon Valley and 
Union Seminary in New York City, 
Rev. Reber spoke on "The Act of Pass- 
ing Through." 

He spent the years 1939-41 and 1946- 
5 1 as a missionary in an area near Hong 
Kong, China, which is now under Com- 
munist domination. During the war years 
he served as pastor of the Second EUB 
Church in Palmyra. Rev. Reber joined 
the faculty of United Theological Semi- 
nary in 1951. 

Ursinus Dean Speaks 
At Frosh Convocation 

Mr. William S. Pettit, Dean of Ursinus 
College, delivered the address at the 
opening Freshman Convocation on Sep- 
tember 12, 1960. 

Dean Pettit received his B.S. and M.S. 
degrees in chemistry from the University 
of Pennsylvania. He has been associated 
with Ursinus College since 1933; and he 
has served as a chemistry professor, as 
Director of Admissions, and as Dean of 
the College. 

Mr. Pettit has been a consultant in the 
Experimental Program for Teacher Edu- 
cation of Temple University. He is a 
trustee of the Montgomery County His- 
torical Society, a former vice chairman 
of the Montgomery County Red Cross, 
president of the Worcester School Au- 
thority, and a vestryman of St. James 
Episcopal Church, Perkiomen. 

Lockwood Will Act 
As Chem Dept. Head 

Dr. Karl Lockwood has been appointed 
acting chairman of the department of 
chemistry during the absence of Dr. 
Howard A. Neidig, who is working with 
the committee preparing the Chemical 
Bond Approach to Chemistry course for 
high school students. 

Dr. Lockwood, who holds the position 
of assistant professor of chemistry, is a 
graduate of Muhlenberg College. He 
received his Ph.D. from Cornell Uni- 

Dr. Neidig has been granted a leave 
of absence until September of 1961 in 
order that he might participate on a full- 
time basis with this experimental pro- 
gram endeavoring to develop a new type 
of introductory course to high school 
chemistry. He has been working with 
this program on a part-time basis since 
1958, when he joined Dr. L. E. Strong 
of Earlham College, Dr. L. B. Clapp of 
Brown University, Dr. A. H. Livering of 
Reed College, and Dr. M. K. Wilson of 
Tufts University. He has played a large 
part in the development of laboratory 
experiments for the program and has as- 
sisted in writing the textbooks that are 
now used on an experimental basis, but 
which are subject for future revision. 

In describing the aims and objectives 
of CBA, Dr. Neidig points out that it 
does not stress memorization of chemical 
values as do traditional chemistry courses. 
"We are now concerned with the 'why' in 
chemical reaction. In our new textbooks 
we are asking students to develop the 
structure of atoms and molecules, and 
from this consider properties." 

"We want the student to see why water 
has characteristics by considering the 
way the atoms are arranged in the mole- 
cule. This puts us in business to have 
the student predict in situations where 
they have no basic information." 

"Students For Kennedy" 
Greet Their Candidate 

James Reilly and Robert Hartnett, Jr., 
co-chairmen of LVC's new campaign or- 
ganization, "Students for Kennedy," wel- 
comed Senator John F. Kennedy to Leba- 
non, Friday morning, September 16. 

Also sitting on the platform with Ken- 
nedy were Dale Chernich, a member of 
the campus organization, and Mr. Alex 
J. Fehr, a faculty member who is co- 
chairman of the Lebanon County "Citi^ 
zens for Kennedy." 

A crowd estimated at 5,000 gathered 
in Market Square, Lebanon, to greet the 
Democratic presidential nominee.

Dan Fritz Debuts 
In SCA Comedy 

The SCA, as part of Freshman Week 
activities, presented a three-act musical 
comedy, all facets of which were "bor- 
rowed" from various sources, in Engle 
Hall Friday, September 16. 

"The Devil and Daniel Fritz" told the 
story of typical freshman Dan Fritz and 
his diabolic deal which made him a tem- 
porary sophomore. The devil, Don 
Drumheller, bargained with Fritz (Larry 
Cisney) with the help of Dan's girl 
friend, played by Leann Grebe. 

Musical support was supplied by a 
nine-piece orchestra with organ, the lat- 
ter played by Jackie Miller. The produc- 
tion was written by Jean Kauffman and 
Pete Riddle, and directed by the latter. 

Lebanon Valley Profs 
Accept Faculty Awards 

Four members of the Lebanon Valley 
College faculty have been granted faculty 
awards for 1960-61. 

They are Dr. George G. Struble, 
chairman of the department of English; 
Dr. Elizabeth GefFen, assistant professor 
of history; John H. Fritz, assistant profes- 
sor of history; and Thomas A. Lanese, as- 
sistant professor of strings, conducting 
and theory. 

The awards carry with them a small 
stipend to enable the professors to 
broaden their academic preparation 
through further education, travel or re- 
search in their particular fields of study. 

Rep. Will iams Speaks 
At Valley GOP Rally 

Alan Williams, Bucks County repre- 
sentative for the state legislature, spoke 
to the LVC Young Republicans for Nix- 
on rally Monday, September 26, in Philo 

He predicted that the votes of college 
students in the coming Presidential elec- 
tion will decide the outcome in several 
states. Students over 21 years of age can 
vote by registering in their home districts 
and then by mailing in their votes at 
least seven days before the election. 

Mr. Williams urged the interest and 
participation of college students in then- 
respective parties. Campus youth organi- 
zations are considered excellent training 
grounds for future political activity. 
These campus groups are desperately 
needed and can exert pressure on the 
legislators to lower the voting age to 18. 

In the 45-minute session he also ex- 
pressed concern that the handful of stu- 
dents attending the rally would not be 
the only ones who were interested in the 
political race. 

Mr. Williams was graduated from 
Wharton School of the University of 
Pennsylvania in 1950 and from the law 
school in 1953. The thirty-three year old 
legislator is the youngest Republican 
county representative ever elected from 
Bucks County and is the first to be en- 
dorsed by organized labor. 

Also attending the rally was Jack Selt- 
zer, Lebanon County representative in 
the state legislature. 

\AA Membership 
Includes Mr. Riley 

Professor Robert C. Riley became a 
member of the Cameron McLeod So- 
ciety of the National Association of Ac- 
countants at the group's Forty First In- 
ternational Conference held in New Or- 
leans, June 20-23, 1960. 

He had served as a National Director 
of the NAA during 1959-1960. Profes- 
sor Riley will be the Society's Harris- 
burg Chairman of Attendance for the 
NAA Regional Conference in Washing- 
ton, October 27-29, 1960. 

Mr. Riley has also been notified of 
his promotion to Major in the United 
States Air Force Reserves. The Lebanon 
Valley professor is a graduate of the 
Command and Staff Course of the Air 
University and of the Economics of Na- 
tional Security Course of the Industrial 
College of the Armed Forces. Currently, 
he is a Statistical Services Officer and 
Education and Training Staff Officer in 
the Air Force Reserves. 

Mr. Riley was a visiting lecturer in ac- 
counting during the past summer session 
at New York University. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 29, 1960 


"We are the music-makers, 
And we are the dreamers of dreams . . ; 
Yet we are the movers and shakers 
Of the world forever, it seems." 

Arthur O'Shaughnessy, The Music-Makers 

Throughout our history as a nation — indeed, 
throughout the history of all mankind — it has 
been the dreamers of better ways of doing things 
who have made our lives more worthwhile. 

And yet the dreamer of today, if he is to con- 
tribute to the betterment of his fellow man, must 
be an educated dreamer. He must have assimilated 
the knowledge and undergone the training that 
enable him to dream beyond the present, beyond 
the knowledge we have now. 

Can there possibly be a better reason for 
strengthening the sources of knowledge — colleges 
and universities? 

It seems incredible that a society such as ours 
which has profited so vastly from an accumula- 

tion of knowledge — and from the fulfillment of 
dreams — should allow anything to threaten these 
wellsprings of our learning. 

The crisis that confronts our colleges threatens 
to weaken seriously their ability to transmit the 
knowledge and to encourage the dreams that 
will keep America strong. 

The crisis is composed of several elements: a 
salary scale that is driving away from teaching 
the kind of person best qualified to teach; over- 
crowded classrooms; and mounting college appli- 
cations that will double in less than ten years. 

Help the colleges and universities of your 
choice. Help them plan for stronger, better-paid 
faculties and for expansion. The returns will be 
greater than you think. 

If you want fo know more about what the college crisis means 
to you, and what you can do to help, write for a free 
booklet to: HIGHER EDUCATION, Box 36, Times Square 
Station, New York 36, N.Y.

Forest grave yard — here lie the remains of thousands of forest trees that should have been used to build 
new homes, schools, churches, or factories. Each year the timber destroyed by carelessly started forest 
fires would build homes for a small city. In a rapidly growing America, we can not afford this shameful 
and unnecessary waste. Please help prevent forest fires.

Wilkes Game 

Continued from Page 1 
linebacker Ray Marchakitus intercepted 
a partially deflected pass by freshman 
quarterback Wes MacMillan. Mar- 
chakitus returned the ball 35 yards for 
the score. Fullback Marvin Antinnes ran 
the ball over for the 2 extra points. 

The score remained 8-7 until with a 
two yard dive, Les Holstein climaxed a 
46 yard march which had featured the 
running of Vern Magnuson and a recep- 
tion of a 24 yard pass to the 4 yard line 
by Hi Fitzgerald. The placement by 
John Yajko split the uprights, making 
the score 14-8. Wilkes then went to 
the air, but to no avail, as the game 
ended LVC, 14, Wilkes, 8.

Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt 

The Flying Dutchmen football squad 
for 1960 has among its members five 
seniors who are playing their last season 
for the Blue and White. 

Dave Miller, who hails from York, is 
now in his fourth year of varsity compe- 
tition. His teammates saw fit to elect the 
5'9", 195-pound guard co-captain for this 
season. Dave also serves as captain of 
Valley's wrestling team. 

215-pound, 6'1" center and tackle Stan 
Kaczorowski comes to LVC from Eli- 
zabeth, New Jersey. Serving as team co- 
captain with Miller, Stan is also in his 
fourth year on the varsity squad. 

Coming from nearby Palmyra, flashy 
halfback Les Holstein, playing his fourth 
year of varsity ball, is already proving 
his worth to this season's squad. Stand- 
ing 5'11" and 160 pounds, this all-around 
athlete holds letters in football, baseball 
and track. During the last two sum- 
mers Les attended the Fellowship of 
Christian Athletes meetings, representing 
LV last year in Estes Park, Colorado. 

Paul Longreen reported for football 
lor the first time last season, and earned 
his letter by the end of the season. In 
addition, Paul is a member of the wres- 
tling squad. He stands 5'10", weighs 180 
pounds and comes from Grantville, Pa. 

Speedster Vern Magnuson, from Har- 
risburg, is beginning his fourth year of 
varsity competition, playing in the half- 
back position. Hampered by injuries dur- 
ing the last five games last season, 5'8", 
180-pound Vern has already made a 
good showing in this year's opening 
home game with Wilkes.

Rel igions of the U. S.A. 

Mennonites Mix Simplicity With 
Horse Sense And Hard Work 

Noted for their agricultural skills and for their homespun simplicity of dress 
and doctrine, 250,000 American Mennonites, many of whom are now urbanized 
and surprisingly modern, attempt to live according to the literal teachings of Jesus. 
If a Mennonite is slapped, he will actually turn the other cheek. If he finds a 
burglar in his home, he will try to persuade the criminal to leave — but won't use 
force. Though Mennonite farms are productive and prosperous, their owners live 
simply, so that they will have greater resources with which to feed the hungry 
and clothe the naked as Jesus instructed. 

Despite this seeming austerity, Mennonite lives are far from dull. How many 
other Americans still have the pleasure of riding a horse-drawn wagon? What 
other group knows the fun of a "snitzing" — an apple-peeling party? Where else, 
besides Mennonite communities, do all the neighbors still pitch in, as in frontier 
days, to build a house for a newly married couple? 

Mennonite farmers did in fact play 
a role in the pioneer settlement and de- 
velopment of American land. But their 
unique way of life is a legacy from a 
much earlier group of pioneers, the 
"Anabaptists," so called because they be- 
lieved that only adults, and not infants 
or children, should be baptized. The 
movement, which began in Switzerland 
in 1535, spread rapidly to Holland and 
Germany, where it was led by Menno 
Simons, whose first name was soon ap- 
plied to all his followers. 

But the Anabaptist-Mennonites, who 
went much further than any existing 
sect in a return to the "original" prac- 
tices of the first Christians, were perse- 
cuted by the groups for their unorthodox 
views. More than 5,000 were put to 
death during the first ten years of the 
movement's existence. 

First Colony Settles in Pa. 

Finding refuge on wasteland no one 
else wanted, the harried farmers turned 
arid north German and Prussian land in- 
to fertile garden spots through their pa- 
tient, skillful cultivation. In 1683, a 
band of these fanners moved again— 
this time to Pennsylvania, where the tol- 
erant Quakers had already settled. 

More Mennonites followed, and the 
Pennsylvania colony expanded rapidly, 
spilling over the other states. Today, 
half the world's Mennonites live in 
America, with large numbers in Penn- 
sylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Michi- 
gan and the Dakotas. Smaller groups 
are in nearly every other state. 

Today, about 40% of American Men- 
nonites are still farmers, many of whom 
believe that life on the land is the only 
right life for a man. In the States as 
in Europe, they have literally turned 
many desolate areas into lands of milk 
and honey. 

As with all successful farmers today, 
farming to the Mennonites is a matter 
of mind as well as muscle. Despite their 
old-world garb, there's nothing old- 
fashioned about their farm management 
or their knowledge of new machinery 
developments that make farming more 

Many Mennonites are ingenious me- 
chanics. At farm equipment demon 
strations, the young Mennonites in par- 
ticular can be seen sitting on the driver's 
seat discussing the difference between a 
gasoline and diesel model of a Massey- 
Ferguson tractor, or testing the latest 

Education a Family Affair 

Another big area of Mennonite in- 
terest is how best to educate the young. 
Children go to Mennonite elementary 
school, but after that, in many cases, 
education continues in the kitchen, farm- 
yard and field. Because some Menno- 
nite schools did not teach geography, cer- 
tain forms of history, and other subjects 
related to the material world, govern- 
ment school officials sometimes com- 
plained about "lower standards of edu- 
cation." Consequently, changes have 
been made in the curriculum of Men- 
nonite schools. 

On the whole, Mennonite beliefs are 
compatible with those of their neighbors, 
most of whom regard Mennonites with 
fondness and respect. These patient, un- 
aggressive farmers have given what 
clergymen of many different faiths re- 
gard as an excellent example of love and 
self-restraint, in their preaching and con- 
sistent practice of the conviction that the 
Way is to "love thy neighbor." 

For the IS 20 Student 

Below are listed 1 1 quotations all hav- 
ing to do with academic life. Seven out 
of eleven and you're Phi Bete material; 
six correct and you're Dean's List; five 
or less, and you'd better hit the books a 
little harder. 

1. The learned are seldom pretty fel- 
lows, and in many cases their appear- 
ance tends to discourage a love of study 
in the young. 

2. Note too that a faithful study of 
the liberal arts humanizes character and 
permits it not to be cruel. 

3. Of making many books there is no 
end; and much studying is a weariness 
of the flesh. 

4. Educational relations make the 
strongest tie. 

5. For the student there is, in its sea- 
son, no better place than the saddle, and 
no better companion than the rifle or 
the oar. 

6. Order and simplification are the 
first steps toward the mastery of a sub- 
ject — the actual enemy is the unknown. 

7. No profit grows where is no pleas- 
ure 'taen; in brief, sir, study what you 
most affect. 

8. Real education must ultimately be 
limited to men who insist on knowing, 
the rest is mere sheep-herding. 

9. Soap and education are not as sud- 
den as a massacre, but they are more 
deadly in the long run. 

10. I wish that some one would give 
a course in how to live. It can't be 
taught in the colleges; that's perfectly 
obvious, for college professors don't 
know any better than the rest of us. 

11. If I were founding a university, I 
would found first a smoking room; then 
when I had a little more money in hand 
I would found a dormitory; then after 
that, ... a decent reading room and a li- 
brary. After that, if I still had more 
money that I couldn't use, I would hire 
a professor and get some textbooks.

Language Professor 
Comes To LVC With 
European Background 

Two cultures blend in the arrival of 
Dr. Ferenc Schwanauer at Lebanon Val- 
ley College as the assistant professor in 
the department of languages. 

Dr. Schwanauer, born in the Hungar- 
ian community of Zsanbek, near Buda- 
pest, studied in school systems very dif- 
ferent from those most LVC students 
have known. Hungary was the scene of 
his boyhood learning. The setting later 
shifted to Germany, where this thirteen- 
year-old of Hungarian and German par- 
entage began his gymnasium (secondary 
school preparing for the university) edu- 

He attained his qualifying certificate, 
known as a maturum, in 1954; and his 
university career at Tubingen and Stutt- 
gart culminated in 1959 with the award- 
ing of his Ph.D. for his thesis work en- 
titled Die Literaturtheorie Friedrich Niet- 
zsche's (Friedrich Nietzsche's Theory of 

Dr. Schwanauer knows life in a Com- 
munist-dominated land. He escaped the 
dictatorial demands and cruelties in the 
midst of the Hungarian Revolution. This 
is in his past, and he wants such experi- 
ence to remain in the past, free from the 
scrutiny of recounting and safe from the 
possibility of recurring. 

He prefers now to channel his thoughts 
and emotions into his new life, with his 
American wife and two children. 

For the students of LVC, Dr. Schwa- 
nauer is a man who avowedly loves his 
profession. He expects from his pupils 
"discipline, energy, and the will to learn." 
To this attitude of eager seriousness of 
purpose, he is willing to respond with 
his knowledge, his enthusiasm for the 
subjects he teaches, and his amiable 
readiness to meet and help the people 
behind the names in the roll book. 

Dr. Schwanauer's hope is, in his own 
words, "to touch the watchfulness" of 
his American acquaintances, to incite in 
them, inobstrusively and without osten- 
tation, an attitude of caution in their 
ideas and in their contacts with Com- 
munism so that they may avoid totali- 
tarian infiltration and the mistakes of the 
peoples now subsisting in fear under the 
Communistic regime. 

The blending of the cultures will cli- 
max in the spring of 1962. Dr. Schwa- 
nauer will then officially become a citi- 
zen of the United States. 

Frosh Girls Write 
Tales Of Initiation 

Freshman initiation is always a pro- 
gram which evokes strong emotions. Rec- 
ognizing this fact, the White Hats re- 
quested that a few freshman girls cap- 
ture the great sentiment of the moment 
in writing. Following are excerpts from 
the freshmen's appreciative essays on the 

"The big question seems to be, 'Why 
do the freshmen like the sophomores?' 
Well, why shouldn't we? After all, ev- 
eryone is human/ 

"They want us to get accustomed to 
the air raid drills the Civil Defense spon- 
sors. In fact they set aside one whole 
day to help us with this. They really 
made this a simple operation too. We 
merely had to put a waste can on our 
heads whenever we heard a whistle* This 
I feel is a very good idea and our White 
Hats thought of it. I personally think 
this should be suggested to the C. D. 
This had a twofold purpose; we now 
know what an ostrage (sic) feels like 
when he puts his head in a hole. So in 
the course of one day we learned about 
air raids and ostrages (sic, sic, sic)." 

"In general, all sophomores seem to be 
nice people. But, I do not wish to be 
misunderstood. I have observed some 
that I like only because I have to. For 
instance, I was awakened the other night 
by a shrill whistle coming from the other 
side of the campus. Upon investigation, 
I discovered the freshman class of boys 
assembled outside for their hike. Now 
the only reason I can like the sopho- 
mores for doing this is that they chose 
to do it to the boys that evening instead 

New LV Philosophy Prof 
Tells Of Past Experiences 

Dr. Martin Foss, a native of Germany and a Visiting Professor of Philosophy 
under the sponsorship of the John Hay Whitney Foundation, will teach Greek 
philosophy, aesthetics, and the humanities at Lebanon Valley College for the 
1960-61 academic season. 

Although he studied philosophy and law at Berlin, Munich, and in Paris, Dr. 
Foss considers himself primarily a philosopher. He prepared for law at his 
father's preference; his father regarded a philosopher's life as financially insecure, 
especially for a young man beginning his career and family. 

Inspired by the experience of study- 


Continued from Page 2 
It didn't take long to prove that this 
just wouldn't work. When political par- 
ties began to form in the 1790's, the two- 
vote system made it practically inevitable 
that the President would be a member of 
one party and the Vice President of an- 
other (as happened in 1796, when Fed- 
eralist John Adams came in first and 
Democrat-Republican Thomas Jefferson 
second). Or the winner and the runner- 
up might be men who couldn't stand 
each other personally, even though they 
were members of the same party (like 
Thomas Jefferson and his Vice President, 
Aaron Burr, elected in 1800). 

So in 1804, the Twelfth Amendment 
to the Constitution provided for separate 
balloting for the two offices. By then, 
electors from each state were being 
pledged in advance to the Presidential 
candidates already chosen by their par- 
ties. And by the 1820's, most states had 
established universal suffrage and pro- 
vided for popular election of electors — 
which meant popular election of the 

The balloting of the Electoral College 
had become the mere formality it is to- 
day. (An elector still can, however, 
theoretically, vote for anybody he pleases 
— and this happened as recently as 1956, 
when an Alabama elector decided to cast 
his vote not for Eisenhower or Steven- 
son, but for a gentleman named Walter 
B. Jones!) 

Credit for the invention of the party 
nominating convention, that glorious 
three-ring circus of American political 
life, goes to a minor party with few 
other claims to fame, the Anti-Mason 
party. The Anti-Masons held the first 
convention in 1830, and the two major 
parties of the day, the National Repub- 
licans and the Democrats, both took up 
the idea in time for the 1832 Presidential 

What can you do in a Presidential 

1. Know the candidates and the issues. 

2. Don't fail to vote. 

3. Enroll in a party and vote in its 
primary elections — that's where choice 
of Presidential nominees begins. 

4. Make a contribution of money to 
your party or to the campaign committee 
of the candidate you favor — your dona- 
tion and those of thousands of other 
private citizens can keep your candidate 
free from financial obligation to special 
interest groups. 

5. Be a "campaign committee of one" 
— talk up your candidate to your family, 
friends and co-workers, and remind them 
to vote. 

And, the Voter's Handbook advises, 
don't listen to or spread unfavorable 
rumors about any candidate. Anything 
you don't read in the news columns of a 
reputable newspaper almost certainly 
isn't true.

the world's toughest jobs — President of 
the United States.

"One of the most exemplary items

ing with world-famous Henri Bergson 
and Max Scheler, however, Dr. Foss's 
first desire was to teach philosophy, and 
following the first World War he secured 
a university position. A young teacher's 
salary in those post-war years was hardly 
enough to support himself and his wife, 
and so he became a judge, satisfying his 
love for philosophy by writing for the 
leading German philosophical magazine, 

As a judge, he found himself in the 
midst of political conflicts which raged 
in the courts at that time, and he found 
he could better serve his ideals of justice 
and freedom by free-lance work in law. 
In both of these capacities he enjoyed 

The rise of Hitler in 1933 caused the 
Foss family to take refuge in Paris, 
where Mrs. Foss, an artist and the 
mother of two sons, established a home 
for refugee boys. During this time, Dr. 
Foss commuted daily from Paris to Ber- 
lin, engaging in anti-Nazi underground 
activities. After four years of eluding 
the Nazis and the Gestapo, Dr. Foss gave 
up his dangerous job "for the good of 
my family" and left for America. 
Accepts Job at Haverford 

In New York, he tried his hand at 
business for a period of three years, but 
happily closed up shop when offered a 
teaching position at Haverford College. 
He taught there until 1958, when he re- 
tired. While in the Haverford area he 
served as a minister for the Religious 
Society of Friends. 

Dr. Foss has published three books: 
The Idea of Perfection in the Western 
World, Symbol and Metaphor in Human 
Experience, and Abstraction and Reality. 
The first two, published by the Prince- 
ton Uniyersity Press, are in English; the 
third, in German, was recently published 
in Germany. Dr. Foss hopes for a pub- 
lication of an English version of the 
book in the near future. Symbol and 
Metaphor is available to interested stu- 
dents in the LVC library. 

Before his appointment to Missoula 
State University, Montana, last year, Dr. 
Foss spent a year abroad. In Japan and 
Burma he studied oriental philosophy 
and Buddhism; six months in India al- 
lowed him to examine Indian thought 
first-hand. At Sanscrit College in Cal- 
cutta he was awarded an honorary 
scholarship recognition. A stopover in 
Egypt enabled him to acquaint himself 
with Egyptian art. 

Dr. Foss' two sons, Oliver and Lukas, 
are known in the art and music worlds. 
Oliver has his own art studio in Paris; 
Lukas, a young Los Angeles composer, 
was a piano soloist with the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra and is now profes- 
sor of symphony at UCLA. Leonard 
Bernstein will present some of Lukas's 
compositions next month in a concert of 
the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. 
Lukas has also written operas and 
records commercially for Decca Records. 

The John Hay Whitney Foundation, 
which in cooperation with the New York 
Foundation is making Dr. Foss' services 
available to LVC, was established in 
1952 with a two-fold purpose: (1) to 
honor individuals who have not only 
distinguished themselves by a lifetime of 
inspired classroom teaching, but also 
have retained the physical and mental 
vigor to continue their important con- 
tribution to American youth, and (2) to 
strengthen teaching of the humanities 
in independent liberal arts colleges 
throughout the country. 

A freshman doesn't know, but he 
doesn't know that he doesn't know. A 
sophomore doesn't know, and he knows 
it. A junior knows, but he doesn't know 
he knows. But a senior, he knows and 
he knows it.

Island Paradise Home 
To Hawaiian Freshman 

Kenward Chung Young Lee, a mem- 
ber of this year's freshman class, is an 
American boy with an air of the inter- 
national. To most of us Wahiawa, Hon- 
olulu, Oahu, in the Hawaiian Islands, 
sounds like a lovely, almost-mythical 
place in a Pacific Ocean paradise, but to 
Kenward, it is merely home. 

Kenward has lived in Wahiawa, a mil- 
itary reservation about twenty-five miles 
from Honolulu, all his life. His father is 
a storage officer at the Army's Schofield 
Barracks. Kenward, his two brothers and 
his sister are third generation Americans. 

One of the few vestiges of their Ko- 
rean ancestry retained by the Lees is 
that of removing shoes before entering 
the house. Kenward points out that most 
third-generation Americans, of which 
there are many in the multi-racial Oahu, 
do not even know their native tongue. 

The majority of students from Ken- 
ward's 2,000-student high school attend 
the largest of Hawaii's four colleges, the 
University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Ken- 
ward explains his desire to go away to 
school by simply stating, "I was on a 
little rock so I wanted on the bigger 
one." West coast colleges were eliminat- 
ed because "too many local kids go 

On the recommendation of Mrs. Mel- 
vin Gruber, "a resident of Middletown, 
Pennsylvania, and a very dear friend of 
the family," Kenward chose Lebanon 
Valley as the college at which to major 
in chemistry as a pre-medical student. 

He came by jet to Chicago, then by 
regular commercial plane to Pennsylva- 
nia. The short time of his trip will seem 
even more amazing when compared to 
the many months before he will return 
home for his summer vacation and the 
years before he will return to practice 
medicine there. He has spent the past 
two summers picking pineapples. This 
is popular summer work for both boys 
and girls. 

Kenward had anticipated coldness 
when he left his warm island to come to 
the mainland. In the physical climate he 
has found that. Our sixty-degree temper- 
atures would be almost record lows in 
Hawaii. Nevertheless, Kenward is cheer- 
fully anticipating autumn and winter in 
the eastern United States. 

Part of this cheerful outlook comes 
from the discovery which Hawaii's am- 
bassador to America has made about the 
social climate around Lebanon Valley 
College. "Someone told me," he states, 
"that this is the coldest part of the coun- 
try, but this hasn't seemed true for me. 
It is really friendly." 

Kenward has come to the mainland 
for an education. It seems that he is 
also giving an education to those of us 
who know little about our fiftieth state. 
With a tolerant smile he tells of the 
amazed look of the upperclassman who 
found out that Kenward could speak 
good English even though he had lived 
in Hawaii all his life.

Music Dept. Announces 
Braun Memorial Award 

Robert W. Smith, chairman of the 
music department at Lebanon Valley, 
has announced the establishment of the 
Dr. Robert Braun Memorial Music 
Achievement Scholarship with a principal 
investment of $5,000 to be held in trust 
by the Pottsville School District. 

The scholarship winner will be an- 
nounced prior to the class day exercises 
in June of 1960. The first award will 
be given to a Pottsville High School 
graduate in the spring of 1961. 

The only specified qualification for 
the award is that the applicants must be 
in the upper third of their graduating 
class. The chairman of the music de- 
partment, Mr. Robert Smith, will decide 
which applicant is musically qualified to 
receive the scholarship. 

The scholarship has been established 
in memory of the late Dr. Robert Braun, 
Founder and Director of the Braun 
Schools of Music, Pottsville, by his 
widow, Frances Zerbey Braun. ;

I've Got A Problem 

For all of LV's students of ancient 
temple riddles, since there are so many, 
the first offering of this column this year 
reads as follows. (Answer next issue.) 

An oracle in a certain temple always 
answers questions asked by its faithful 
followers through the mouths of three 
gods. Unfortunately, their stone images 
are all alike, and no one knows which 
god is which. 

One is the God of Truth, who never 
lies. One is the God of Falsehood, who 
never tells the truth. The third is named 
the God of Diplomacy, whose answers 
are sometimes true and sometimes not. 

One afternoon a wretched begger came 
to the temple, intent upon gaining fame 
by discovering which god was which. 
He asked the statue on the left, "Which 
god sits next to thee?" 

"The God of Truth," was the answer. 

Next he asked the center god, "Who 
art Thou?" The answer came back, "The 
God of Diplomacy." 

Then he turned to the image on the 
right and asked, "Who sits next to thee?" 
He was told, "The God of Falsehood." 

Armed with this information, the beg- 
gar went forth among his people as an 
interpreter of the oracle. Which gods 
were which? (La Vie welcomes the sub- 
mission of solutions and will print the 
names of successful puzzle solvers. An- 
swers may be placed in the mailbox of 
the Student Personnel Office.) 

The Edge Of Blight 

Although this column was originally 
intended as a fashion column, we feel 
that there is another feature of our cul- 
ture which should be brought to the at- 
tention of all serious students and made 
prerequisite for I.S. 20 students in partic- 

We are speaking, of course, of the 
dramatic presentation which can be seen 
on Channel 8 on any afternoon between 
! 4:45 and 5 o'clock. (Just before "Quick- 
I Draw McGraw" and "Huckleberry 
I Hound," with which we are sure some 
of our less plebeian and more discrimi- 
nating colleagues are acquainted.) 

For legal reasons, we shall refer to the 
production as merely "The Edge of 
Blight" (...organ crescendo...) Of 
course, any similarity between our fic- 
tional label and the equally stirring title 
of the actual production is purely pre- 

As the title indicates, "The Edge of 
Blight" depicts tragedy in the true Aris- 
totleian manner. The lack of unity caus- 
ed by the 23%-hour intermission be- 
tween each 15 minute act is compensated 
for by the skillful narrative technique be- 
fore and after each episode. And, as you 
shall see, a full 23% hours is necessary 
for complete recovery from the powerful 
emotional appeal of "... Blight." 

First a word about our heroine, Dor- 
othy Crackanthorpe, a girl like any girl 
(what else?). Dorothy helps to give "The 
Edge of Blight" its universal scope and 
empathy through the very typicality of 
her life situation. 

Our unblemished heroine (recently 
elected "Clearasil Girl of the Month" by 
her local Acne Store) lives with her fa- 
ther, the police chief of Gurgling Springs, 
a small town in the heart of the fan 
belt, blooming with innocence and a 
modest prosperity, though occasionally 
disrupted (but never corrupted) by an 
undercurrent of evil (like the time that 
Harold, the traveling salesman, tried, 
without success of course, to date Doro- 

Dorothy, like any girl of nineteen, 
spends her time supervising the staff of 
household servants, entertaining at infor- 
mal lawn parties, running the white ele- 
phant booth at church bazaars, flying to 
New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles 
for weekends, and occasionally working 
as secretary for Jed Taylor (who is, nat- 
urally, deeply and virtuously in love with 

Like every girl of nineteen, Dorothy is 
constantly surrounded by a bevy of ad- 
mirers — playwrights, fashion experts, 
make-up advertisers, Clearasil Girl of the

intimate clique of beaux — Mergetroid, 
the mysterious Russian Mazurka dancer;

To The 


Ten Simple Steps 
Can Mean Clearer, 
Faster Typewriting 

Keys to greater efficiency and higher 
pay, if you type, may be right there on 
your typewriter. A recent study by In- 
ternational Paper Company reveals that 
nine typists in every ten can improve 
their work — either get more done, save 
energy, or both — just by heeding these 
ten tips from typing teachers and top 

1. Devote three 
minutes at the 
start of each day 
to sprucing up 
your typewriter. 
Wipe off all the 
exposed parts with 
a soft dry cloth. 
Get into corners 
with a long handled brush. For cleaning 
type — a necessary operation if your let- 
ters are to have a clear-cut appeal — use 
a dry bristle brush, brushing toward you 
to keep dust from falling into the me- 

2. Carbon copies needn't smear your 
reputation as a top typist. When insert- 
ing several sheets of paper, to make sure 
they go in evenly, fit the leading edge 
into a folded length of paper or into the 
flap of an envelope. Release the paper 
feed by using the release lever and insert 
the pack of paper behind the platen. 
Then return the release lever to its nor- 
mal position. 

3. Protect the platen from undue wear, 
and get better original and carbon im- 
pressions, by putting a backing or second 
sheet at the bottom of the pack. 

4. Use the tabulator. Properly set, 
it saves countless strokes of single spac- 
ing and provides a speedy short cut for 
statements, reports, paragraph indenta- 
tions, subheadings and quoted materials. 

5. The wide open spaces are the sec- 
retary's friend. A short single-spaced 
letter looks forlorn and inconsequential 
on the page, and is difficult to read. Type 
all first drafts triple space. This leaves 
plenty of room to write in corrections 
and afterthoughts, and may save you an 
extra typing job. Guard against making 
the right margin wider than the left. It 
should be narrower, if anything. On the 
other hand, the bottom margin should 
be wider than the top. 

6. Use the best quality paper you can 

7. Erase erasure problems. When eras- 
ing a letter or word, always use a clean 
eraser and an eraser shield to prevent 
unsightly smears. A small piece of very 
fine sandpaper or an emery board will 
keep your eraser clean. Erase with a cir- 
cular motion, using light strokes, after 
first moving the carriage to right or left 
so that erasures won't fall into the ma- 
chine. White chalk or aspirin rubbed 
lightly over the erasure and dusted with 
a clean brush will disguise the corrected 

8. When keys jam, separate them care- 
fully, one at a time. Don't ever use 
force. If you do, you risk bending the 
typebars out of alignment and ruining 
the appearance of your correspondence. 

9. Here's a trick to help you insert a 
letter omitted from a word. First erase 
the whole word. Position the carriage 
so that the open space immediately fol- 
lowing the last letter of the preceding 
word is at the exact printing point. Hold 
down the space bar while you strike the 
first letter of the word; this gives you a 
partial space between the last word and 
the word you've erased. Release the 
space bar and depress it again while 
striking the second letter. Continue this 
until all the characters have been typed 
in. Using the back spacer isn't nearly 
as accurate. But it's best to practice this 
trick a few times before trying it out on 

10. For quick repeating of the same 
character across the page — periods, as- 
terisks, dashes — alternate using both 
hands instead of just one finger. Tap 
the key and space bar alternately. If 
you don't want space between the char- 
acters, start over, using the same key 
and space bar, but advance one space 
before starting.

Valley's Les Holstein, '61, sprints across 
the goal ahead of fallen Dragons for his 
third touchdown in last Saturday's game. 

Dutchmen Slay Dragons 
In Home Contest, 40-8; 
Holstein, Magnuson Star 

The Lebanon Valley football squad, 
led by Les Holstein and Vern Magnu- 
son, ripped the Drexel Tech Dragons 
Saturday evening by a 40-8 score. 

In an early display of strength, Drex- 
el's Al Wagner returned the opening 
kickoff 33 yards before being brought 
down. The Dutchmen halted the drive, 
but Wagner intercepted a pass attempt 
by Roland Barnes, and returned the ball 
to the LVC 15. 

Three plays later Jim Holden carried 
the ball over the line from the three yard 
"ne, and added two extra points on a 
Pass from Holden to Wagner. 

The Valley squad fought back strong- 
ly, and in four plays advanced the ball 
from their own 33 to a goal with Les 
Holstein covering the last 59 yards. An 
attempt at two extra points was foiled. 

Holstein and Vern Magnuson teamed 
U P to drive the team to another goal, 
er <ding the quarter with a 12-8 tally. 

The second period featured a 25 yard 
Pass from Wes MacMillan to Larry 
Godshall for a score. Then, with two 
seconds remaining in the half, Hi Fitz- 
gerald rushed the Drexel quarterback 
Golden, who threw a blind pass. Stan 
Kaczorowski intercepted and took the 
ba " 30 yards for the TD. 

Having finished the half at 32-8, the 
Flying Dutchmen kept the Dragons at 
j^y until late in the fourth quarter, when 
"olstein intercepted a pass by Holden 

The 1961 Junior Prom will be co-sponsored by the Faculty-Student Council 
and the Junior Class, and will feature the music of a nationally-publicized dance 


All students were given the opportunity to vote for their choice of the bands 
available for the date in question, May 6. The list included the Tommy Dorsey 
Orchestra, directed by Warren Covington, the bands of Maynard Ferguson and 
Ralph Marterie, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, directed by Ray McKinley. 

Both the Faculty-Student Council and 
the Junior Class had been planning sep- 
arately to bring a big band to the LVC 
campus. When this came to the attention 
of both organizations, it was deemed 
impractical for both groups to attempt 
the same project. 

Considering the amount of money 
($2800) involved, it was felt that a com- 
bination of forces would result in many 
advantages, including greater available 
funds for decorations and special acous- 
tical devices to make the gymnasium 
suitable for the volume of a large band. 

The dance will be known as the "Jun- 
ior prom, co-sponsored by the Faculty- 
Student Council and the Junior Class." 
All committees are to be co-chairmaned 
by a member of each organization. Tick- 
ets will sell for $4.00. Net cost to each 
organization is figured at a maximum of 

It is believed by each of the organiza- 
tions involved that this co-sponsorship 
will result in the greatest benefit to the 
campus as a whole. The choice of the 
band, based upon student poll, and the 
theme of the Prom will be announced in 
a forthcoming issue of La Vie.

Questions Prom Decision 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

The recent decision of the junior class 
to spend $2800 for four hours' worth of 
dance music leads us to question the val- 
ues of those students who supported the 
decision. The term "status seeker" has, 
we realize, become hackneyed through 
overuse, yet this expression seems appli- 
cable in this situation. 

Even if impression-making is the ma- 
jor aim of life (a view with which we 
do not concur), the cost of about $700 
an hour still seems a bit high. 

To begin with, what is the purpose 
of a band at the Junior Prom? We can

Continued from page 1 

think of three possibilities: danceable 
music, entertainment, a means by which 
we can impress other colleges that Leb- 
anon Valley can afford a "name" band 
for its Prom. 

In examining these purposes, we as- 
sume that the first purpose is a necessity. 
The second purpose, while not absolutely 
essential, adds interest, although a mod- 
erately-priced band should be capable in 
this area. If not, the Hershey ballroom 
features each of the top bands annually 
(because they can afford it). In all likeli- 
hood, the band that plays at our Prom 
will also appear at Hershey at a lower 

Now we come to the third purpose 
which, in our opinion, is totally invalid, 
regardless of the amount of money in- 
volved. Needless expenditure merely for 
the sake of impression is a mark of 
immaturity and extravagance. Unfortu- 
nately the junior class seems to have 
attached the greatest bulk of importance 
to the least valid motive, since neither 
of the other two purposes mentioned ne- 
cessitates the expenditure of several thou- 
sand dollars. 

Since at least one-third of this amount 
will come from the student activities fee, 
we feel that, as students, we may suggest 
some ways in which this money could be 
put to more profitable use. We would 
like to put forth some ideas which we 
feel will benefit the entire student body 
to a much greater degree than would the 
presence of a "name" band on campus: 

1) Equipment necessary to move Val- 
ley's home games from Lebanon to 
home; 2) more funds allotted for more 
effective speakers in chapel; 3) increase 
of student work-aids; 4) larger allottments 
to organizations which serve campus 
needs; 5) contributions toward much- 
needed dormitories, an auditorium, etc. 

While $2800 would be no more than 
a beginning for most of these projects, 
at least it would be a beginning. If this 
letter seems overly-long, it is because we 
feel that the junior class decision was 
overly-hasty, and that the expenditure 
of such a large amount deserves more 
time and consideration than their ten- 
minute class meeting allowed. 


Man Wants an Answer 
To the Editors of La Vie: 

Who is going to pull in the Tug of 
War against the freshmen, the White 
Hats or the sophomores? According to 
all the tradition connected with the ini- 
tiation program, the same group that 
puts the frosh through their paces should 
also pull against them in the Tug. 

The frosh have nothing against the 
sophomore class; their battle is with the 
White Hats. Why should the sophs have 
to do all the work after the Hats have 
had all the fun? 

The Tug has always been a chance for 
the frosh to even the score with their 
persecutors, but I imagine even that con- 

cept of initiation has gone out the wind- 

At least the frosh have one thought 
to console them. Even if they cannot 
pull against the White Hats, they always 
have the dunking afterwards. 

Keep your feet dry, Hats! 


AH In Favor 

To the editors of La Vie: 

Nearly every letter we see in this col- 
umn either gripes about something or 
cuts somebody up. At the risk of being 
nonconformist, we would like to place 
credit where credit is due. 

This year's football squad is nothing 
short of great. Their smashing victory 
over Drexel proved what great potential 
our boys have. They really gave the 
large crowd their money's worth. 

As for the band, they also deserve 
applause for their efforts, especially con- 
sidering the number of their rehearsals 
which have been rained out. Besides 
sounding better, their half-time routines 
show a lot of imagination. 

Congratulations are also in order to 
the White Hats, whose method of ter- 
minating the Frosh Frolics was a nice 
surprise for the freshmen. It was refresh- 
ing to hear them talk about a treat in- 
stead of a treatment! 

We wish the Debate Society a success- 
ful year as they endeavor to re-establish 
this form of competition at LVC. If 
their talent even approaches the level of 
their ambition, they will make their mark 
among campus organizations. 

Finally, we appreciate the time and 
efforts of those students who are helping 
to make the Chapel Choir a success. 
They and all Valleyites who participate 
in extra-curricular activities are helping 
to make our college a school of which 
to be proud.

Accolades To A 
Neglected Group 

While much credit is due the marching 
band for its new precision drills, a very 
vital part of the organization, the front 
ranks of majorettes and color guard, 
should receive their share for their con- 
tribution to the appearance of the band. 

The majorettes consist of six twirlers, 
led by Betsy Black, who is featured ba- 
ton soloist. Betsy has studied baton un- 
der the instruction of Chet Morley for 
many years. The other girls in the group 
are Barbara Wogish, Roberta Dudas. 
Carol Bingman, Mildred Evans and Nan- 
cy Wagner. 

The group has not only added two 
new twirlers since last year, Millie and 
Nancy, it has also acquired new blue and 
white flag batons, adding a novelty touch 
to the band's routines. 

The color guard is headed by their 
captain, Brenda Brown, who carries the 
sword. Sophomore Kristine Kreider was 
chosen to be a member of the group last 
summer. Tryouts were held early in Sep- 
tember, and three freshman girls were 
also selected. 

These frosh include Judy Cassel, an 
alternate flag carrier, Linda Bell, an al- 
ternate gun carrier, and Hanna Pisle, 
who, along with junior Emily Bowman, 
is a flag carrier. The other members of 
the squad are Elizabeth Moore, Sylvia 
Bucher, Betsy McElwee and Lois Rank- 

The color guard made new uniforms 
for themselves last year and were pro- 
vided with new hats with high white 
plumes for the current football season. 

It is hoped that at all future appear- 
ances of the marching band, proper ap- 
preciation will be accorded these vital 
members of the organization. They drill 
as hard as the musicians to perfect their 
movements, and are the first section of 
the band to be seen as they enter the 
field at the beginning of each pre-garne 
and half-time show. (CB)

SC A Plans Organized 
Student Study Groups 

In an effort to fill what it considers to 
be a need and a desire for extracurricular 
intellectual concern on our campus, SCA 
is, through a steering committee, develop- 
ing small study groups consisting of in- 
terested students and faculty resource 

It is intended that these groups meet 
at regular intervals to study in depth 
various subjects of interest. Examples of 
topics are "Africa," "Southeast Asia," 
and "Theology and Culture." 

Within a few weeks, students will be 
asked to indicate their willingness to parti- 
cipate in these study groups, as well as 

Dr. W. C. H. Prentice, Dean of 
Swarthmore College and retiring 
president of Division 1 of the Amer- 
ican Psychological Association, will 
speak in Engle Hall, Tuesday, Octo- 
ber 18, at 8 p.m. 

Dr. Prentice has chosen as his topic 
"Cognitive Influences on Motivation." 
All interested students and faculty 
members are invited to attend.

Service Organisation 
Directs Blood Bank 

A Blood Bank Club came into exist- 
ence at LVC shortly after Alpha Phi 
Omega officers cleared the idea with 
Mrs. William Tredick, R.N., of the col- 
lege infirmary, the deans of the college, 
and a Lebanon pathologist from the 
Good Samaritan Hospital. 

The club was established as a security 
precaution in case personal tragedy would 
befall someone affiliated with the college. 

Anyone connected with the college is 
automatically a member of the club and 
may benefit from its services. This in- 
cludes all regularly matriculated full-time 
students, faculty, administration, mainte-

A Question Of Values 

Lebanon Valley College is presently split between two opposing factions, the 
first substantially larger than the second. One advocates a big name band for the 
1961 Junior Prom. The other, a decided minority, is opposed to it for financial 
reasons. In addition, only two proponents of the minority view have had the cour- 
age to state their objections in the face of majority disapproval and ridicule. 

One thing the students of this campus, as mature and responsible individuals, 
must realize is that both sides have valid arguments. There will be no meeting of 
minds as long as one calls the other "status seekers." Neither is anything accom- 
plished by accusing anyone of lacking school spirit if he doesn't favor a big band. 

This paper will support, through its advertising and its columns, the 1961 
Junior Prom. Once any organization or class is committed to a financial contract, 
the most important consideration of the whole school should be the success of the 

However, for the good of future classes at Lebanon Valley, all those concerned 
with this Prom should force themselves to completely discard their personal desires 
and prejudices and evaluate the band decision realistically. 


Those who support this new experiment should be commended for their appar- 
ent willingness to work. The success of the Prom will depend in large part upon an 
effective advertising campaign. Also, those who attend will want something besides 
a name band to help them remember how special their Prom was. A lot of planning 
will be necessary to make the atmosphere just right. 

Lebanon Valley's anemic social life needs a booster shot of some kind. While 
the weekend exodus is due in part, as was mentioned at the last Faculty-Student 
Council meeting, to the outside employment of many students, there is no reason 
why those who do remain here should have to seek out-of-town entertainment so 

The actual reason behind the attempt to secure a name band is not to impress 
other colleges. Lebanon Valley now enjoys a very fine reputation in both the aca- 
demic and athletic fields, especially considering the phenomenal success of the 1960 
football team, now leading in its division of the Middle Atlantic Conference. It is 
perfectly understandable and commendable that the students would like to see our 
social standards brought up on a par. 


The other side of the story must be much more impartially reviewed, since it 
would be hard to find a student at Valley who would not like to see a professional 
dance orchestra on campus. Therefore, the ability of the students to recognize the 
validity of these points will attest to their sense of responsibility. 

Lebanon Valley did not attain its present stature without considerable expense. 
Our fine faculty can not give its services gratis, and housing and feeding our campus 
population is no small endeavor. 

No student at LVC is paying the total cost of his education; nor could most of 
them do it if they had to. We have the largest program of financial aid, percentage- 
wise, of any college in Pennsylvania. 50.4 per cent of our students receive aid in 
one form or another. 

This is not the whole story. The bills at this school would rise alarmingly were 
it not for the generous contributions of friends, alumni and affiliated churches. 
Every student at Lebanon Valley owes a large debt of gratitude to a great many 
persons for the privilege of attending a fine college. Their generosity makes our 
education possible. 

The reader must now divorce himself completely from the campus scene, and 
place himself in the position of an alumnus who has received a request for a dona- 
tion to help finance any of the many necessary projects at LV. Why should anyone 
contribute to the education of college students who have $2800 of their own to 
spend on four hours of entertainment? 


La Vie supports the junior class and Faculty-Student Council in its name band 
project for this year, and wishes it the greatest success. It also urges a closer exami- 
nation of all factors and values before any future project of this nature is attempt- 
ed. Will next year's junior class be satisfied with something less than this year's 

Lebanon Valley is a college of approximately 650 students, each of whom 
could have attended a large university if they had desired a "collegiate" social life. 
Instead they are a relatively small group, and are receiving some of the finest educa- 
tional opportunities available, because the college places academic achievement at the 
top of its list. There is a college for every type of person. Which variety of reputa- 
tion does a school the most good, the academic or the social? Why will you be 
proud to say you attended Lebanon Valley? (PHR)

Letters to La Vie 

Prom Choice Defended 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

Just because a class wishes to do 
something new, something which has 
never been done before on campus, are 
they to be considered status seekers? 

If this is the case, then we would say 
that when Edison invented the light bulb 
and the Wright Brothers flew their first 
airplane, they were also status seekers. If 
every time people did something new 
and different they were considered status 
seekers, then we hope the world will al- 
ways be filled with this type of person. 

If people were always looked down 
upon for trying something new and were 
ostracized for "thinking big," where 
would we be today? Progress is a sign 
of life.. . 

May we ask what is wrong with hold- 
ing a place of esteem in the eyes of oth- 
er colleges? If we can rival them in the 
athletic and scholastic fields, why can't 
we rival them on the social field? The 
social life on this campus is among the 
poorest of any college in this area. Is it 
wrong to attempt to give it a shot in the 

The two young ladies who wrote the 
letter in the last issue say they wish to 
do something to benefit the student body. 
Isn't bringing pleasure to the student 
body a benefit? 

Bringing a big name band on campus 
might provide more of a benefit than 
first meets the eye. If a class is willing 
to unite and work for a specific goal, this 
certainly benefits the campus. Or isn't 
school spirit a part of college life? 

If a student can feel proud of his 
school because he can say, "We too had 
a big name band," does not his also make 
for better school spirit? Or should going 
to class be the only feeling we have 
about LV? 

Why don't we ask the campus how it 
stands on this question? After all, as was 
stated, it is their money. . . 

We have just one more question to 
pose for the consideration of the two 
young ladies who oppose big name 
bands. Do you want the junior class to 
donate its money to this program or are 
you just referring to the amount which 
will be provided by the Faculty-Student 

In the first place, a maximum of $2000 
will be paid out for the band, and only 
half of that will be Faculty-Student 
Council money. This $1000 would not 
even be a beginning for any of the pro- 
grams the girls suggested. 

But if this amount would be used to 
make the student body more college con- 
scious, it could mean a beginning — a be- 
ginning of the end for the suitcase at 

Cooperation Sought in Faculty Survey 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

The presidential poll presently being 
conducted among the faculty of the col- 
lege will be rendered unacceptable unless 
more returns are received. 

To date, "Students for K and J" has 
received only twelve answers to its in- 
quiries. The purpose of the poll is to 
stimulate interest on the campus; there- 
fore, we would appreciate the faculty's 
cooperation on this project. Any faculty 
member who has not responded is urged 
to do so by the next La Vie deadline, 
October 24. 

Sincerely yours, 

Figures Prom Costs 
To the Editors of La Vie: 

Just for the sake of curiosity, I decid- 
ed to figure out a tentative list of ex- 
penses for the 1961 junior prom. 

Dividing the $2800 cost of the band 
by 650 students and adding in the fol- 
lowing items, here is what it will cost 
every fellow who gets a date for this 

$ 8.62 — Share of band cost per couple 
4.00 — Ticket price per couple 
7.50 — Minimum tuxedo rental 
5.00 — Minimum corsage price 
3-00 — Post-dance refreshments 
1.00 — Minimum auto expenses 

A Suggestion 

In the wake of the major part of the initiation program, this editorial will set 
forth a description of the main things sought after during an introductory process 
of this kind, and some modifications of the present setup which may remedy some 
of this year's problems along this line. 

In the first place, a special temperament is required of those who are carrying 
on the initiation. They must be students who know from experience the value of 
the program; they must be of the opinion that temporary subordination of the fresh- 
men serves a valuable psychological purpose in conditioning the incoming class for 
college life. 

An attitude of receptiveness should be instilled in the new class. A freshman 
needs to realize that he is indeed a tenderfoot as he approaches the fund of informa- 
tion available to him at college. He must cope with new and unique ideas; he should 
prepare himself for the unexpected; he has to learn to think quickly and imagina- 
tively. This attitude will serve him well throughout college and will help him not 
only to find his way from Mt. Gretna to the campus at 4:00 a.m. but to find his way 
from Mt. Olympus to Capitol Hill in a history course. He will find his feelings simi- 
lar as he approaches a White Hat with questions on the L-Book or a prof with a 
pop quiz. 

A display of personality should manifest itself during the initiation period, both 
on the part of individual frosh and the class as a group. A revolt "to end it all" 
shows impertinence, but a constructive showing of spirit and ambition, an "imagin- 
ative obedience" to freshman rules, and a good-natured rebelliousness can set aside 
a class as something special. 

The White Hats, in the opinion of this editor, have taken giant steps toward a 
better system of introducing frosh to LVC. However, two modifications are sug- 
gested here, which may provide the finishing touches to the system begun by the 
White Hats. The Hats are possibly a transitional group between the old form of 
initiation and what will eventually be a still different organization . 

Sophomores should constitute the White Hats. This group, elected from each 
campus organization on the same plan by which this year's Hats were chosen, would 
serve as the committee for planning the initiation group. They would also be the 
members of the Tribunal. From time to time arrangement should be made for the 
active participation of all sophomores in the plans laid by the Hats. 

It seems clear that only a sophomore has the unique temperament, ignited by 
fresh memories of his own adjustment to the college world, to arouse in freshmen a 
healthy respect for the experience he is beginning. 

This year's group elicited no rebellion from the Class of '64. No freshman 
band announcing the enthusiasm of the class preceded or followed the Frolics, as 
in past years; no class cheers or songs evolved; conspiratory gatherings of frosh 
behind locked doors were few and scattered; the chief reaction was unimaginative 
obedience to the requests of the Hats. Investigation confirms that '64 is the only 
class now on campus to fail to exhibit an attitude of revolt. 

Was this year's program an overly-mitigated one, so that the freshmen actually 
had little to revolt against? Perhaps an all-sophomore committee could change all 
that for the Class of '65. 

The above suggestions could be incorporated in a revised White Hat Constitu- 
tion. La Vie welcomes student opinion on this topic. (JMK)

J^a Vie inquired 

by Connie Myers 
Is Lebanon Valley College justified in 
spending $2,800 for a big-name band for 
the Junior Prom? The Faculty-Student 
Council and the Junior Class have each 
agreed to pay $900 of the cost. Tickets 
for the spring event will cost $4.00 per 

Is all this expense worthwhile? A re- 
cent letter to La Vie (Oct. 6, 1960) 
pointed out many other uses to be found 
for this money around the Lebanon Val- 
ley College campus. It also pointed out 
that such a band can be heard in Her- 
shey at less cost per couple. 

A brief survey of students' opinions 
highlights some features of the problem. 

Phil Bronson: "It's all right to try 
having a well-known band for one year, 
but it's too big an expense to have one 
every year." 

Shelvy Bixel: "I think it's a good idea 
to have a big-name band for the prom. 
It will bring some fame to our school." 

Kay Hoffer: "If the majority of the 
student body is in favor of having a big- 
name band and if the groups agree to 
work together in organizing the event, I 
think that we are justified in spending 
the money." 

Jim Winand: "Yes, I feel we should 
have a nationally-known band. It would 
bring a good name to our school. After 
all, lots of kids look to our school for 
social activities."

a symbol widely known throughout the 
ancient world. The Egyptians called it 
"canob," after a T-shaped instrument used 
to measure the annual rise of the Nile 
on whose bounty the life of the nation 
depended. For other nations of the East, 
it was an "urani," and took the shape of 
two pieces of wood with handles. By 
rubbing the two sticks together, the an- 
cients kindled sacred fire. 

As early as 1225 B.C., Greek worship- 
pers of Bacchus offered that god cakes 
of flour with a figure of the cross im- 
printed on them. The swastika, or twist- 
ed cross, which became a symbol of ter- 
ror in the 20th Century, appears on the 
oldest medallions of the Buddhists and 
was a mystical good omen in many Hin- 
du sects. 

The cross was used as an instrument 
of national punishment in the time of 
Abraham. As a gallows, it was familiar 
to the Egyptians, Africans, Macedonians, 
Greeks and Romans. To various peoples 
it has meant a symbol of eternal life, 
productive power, or the life-giving qual- 
ities of the sun. 

For Christians around the world, the 
cross is a symbol of their faith. In their 
days of persecution, faithful believers 
used the cross as a secret pass-sign, later 
wore it on their foreheads as a means 
of recognition. Crucifixes came to be 
widely distributed by the Church as aids 
to devotion. 

The cross was a badge of a crusade 
in 1905, and became the emblem of the 
medieval military religious order of the 
Knights of Templars. 

In the New World, the Spaniards con- 
quered New Spain in the name of the 
cross. But they were astonished to find 
the holy emblem of their own faith al- 
ready the object of worship in the tem-

Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt 

With the Dutchmen off to a flying start, fans are looking for big things from 
the boys in the remaining games. Here is how we have fared against these teams 
in the past. 

Wilkes. One of our more recent rivalries, the Wilkes series began in 1953. 
Valley has dominated the Colonels seven games to one, losing only in 1954 by a 
19-0 score. The five LV victories since 1955 have included tallies of 41-6 and 39-6. 
Last year's final was 10-3 and this year Wilkes bowed 14-8. 

Drexel. This series dates back to 1933, and is tied at four games each, includ- 
ing this year's 40-8 romp. The 1959 Dutchmen squad shut out the Dragons by a 
score of 20-0. 

Upsala. LVC leads in this series 6-3, although last year's contest found us on 
the short end of an 8-0 score. The first game of the series was played in 1937, at 
which time Upsala won 3-0. 

Muhlenberg. One of Valley's oldest rivals, the Mules first met defeat at the 
hands of the Dutchmen in 1900, being shut out 36-0. Since then, however, the 
record credits them with 18 victories against LV's 14, with one 21-21 tie in 1921. 
Last year's conflict saw the Blue and White victorious, 12-7. 

Moravian. Lebanon Valley is far ahead in total victories over Moravian 
College, having won 14 and tied one of 20 contests held since 1902. Last year LV 
won on College Day by a score of 6-0. 

Dickinson. This series, the second oldest on this year's schedule, finds the 
Dutchmen trailing with a record of three wins, eight losses and one tie. In the five 
games between 1898 and 1912, Valley failed to score a point against the Red Devils, 
being shut out each time, until the Dutchmen managed to place three points on the 
board (against Dickinson's 53) in 1912. Since then, however, the Devils have won 
only one game, the 1946 tilt, by a score of 2-0. Last year's contest, the first since 
the one just mentioned, was won by Valley 15-6. 

Albright. The years since the first game in 1890 have produced some great 
battles, with the Lions leading in victories 19-17, with three ties on the record. Valley 
dominated the early years of the rivalry (1890-1928) with 10 wins, one loss (1913) 
and one tie (1927), but lost 11 and tied one of 13 games played through 1940. From 
1941 to 1959, LV has taken 6 games to Albright's 6 and lost the 1959 contest by an 
18-0 shut out. 

Washington and Jefferson. This year will mark the first gridiron meeting 
between the two teams. 

PMC. In 20 games dating back to 1933, Lebanon Valley holds a slight edge 
of one game. The record stands at 10-9, with one tie. In recent years the Dutchmen 
have not tasted victory against the Cadets. Last year's score was PMC 19, LVC 6. 

Valley Shuts Out Upsala, 6-0 

Magnuson Sinks Vikings With 93 Yard Dash 

Lebanon Valley took its third consecutive game and the lead in the Northern 
Division of the Middle Atlantic Conference with a 6-0 win over Upsala in East 
Orange, New Jersey, October 7. 

Linebacker Vern Magnuson scored the only points of the game in the third 
quarter. Clearing right tackle, he was unchallenged after passing the 30 yard line, 
and covered 93 yards for the goal. The try for an extra point failed. 

The first half saw the two teams ex- 

Magnuson Chosen

change plays from one end of the field 
to the other. Valley made the most 
serious threat in the first half, driving 
to the Upsala 16, only to lose the ball 
due to a fumble. Each team came within 
field goal range once during the first half, 
but both attempts failed. 

Late in the third quarter the Vikings 
make their most serious drive, reaching 
the LV seven yard line. Valley's defense, 
which has allowed only one touchdown 
from the line of scrimmage this season, 
brought them up short. 

The last quarter saw neither team 
cross the goal line. Upsala was held 
scoreless, and attained only 213 yards on 
the ground and 18 in the air. The Vik- 
ings had 15 first downs to Valley's 10.

Actuaries Will Give 
Exams In November 

The Society of Actuaries will give its 
General Mathematics Examination at 
Lebanon Valley College on Wednesday, 
November 16. This will consist of a three 
hour multiple-choice achievement exam 
based on material covered in differential 
and integrated calculus. Upon successful 
completion of the test, a candidate be- 
comes a full fellow of the Society. 

An actuary is the mathematician of 
the insurance business. He has succeeded 
in placing social welfare on a practical 
dollars-and-cents basis, thus helping to 
make available the benefits of life insur- 
ance, pensions, social security, and 
health insurance. The average annual sal- 
ary of men employed in actuarial divis- 
ions of insurance companies can be as 
high as $20,000. 

Detailed information and examples of 
questions (with answers) are contained in 
a pamphlet which is available in the 
mathematics department. Bob Kilmoyer, 
Don Murray, and Bob Daigneault can

Social Science Group 
Plans For Semester 

Pi Gamma Mu, National Honor So- 
ciety of the social sciences, held its first 
meeting of the year at the home of Mr. 
Tom, adviser for the group. 

The purpose of the meeting was to 
outline this semester's program for the 
group. Some programs being planned 
are a talk by Mr. Carl Brandt of Har- 
risburg on the stock market; a discussion 
group on Sheila Taynton's trip to Russia; 
a showing by Mrs. Fields of her slides 
taken on her recent trip to South Ameri- 
ca; and a trip to New York City. 

The Society decided to continue its tu- 
toring program. Any student interested 
in receiving such aid may do so by con- 
tacting any member of the group. New 
members will be initiated into the Society 
at its next meeting.

similar in design to the Greek, Latin and 
Maltese forms. 

The cross of Lorraine, which Joan of 
Arc wore into battle, became General 
Charles deGaulle's symbol in leading the 
French resistance movement during 
World War II. A Swiss welfare agency 
which adopted as its emblem a red cross 
on a white field, reversing the color 
scheme in the Swiss flag, in 1864 organ- 
ized a conference to help the sick and 
wounded soldiers of the world. 16 na- 
tions attended and established the inter- 
national Red Cross. 

A plain gold cross, worn in the lapel 
and given free to those who wish it, is 
the emblem adopted by the largest radio 
mission in the world, The Lutheran 

Kinds of Crosses 

The simple Latin cross, with an up- 
right and single shorter transom, is the 
commonest. With two transoms it is call- 
ed a patriarchal cross; with three, a papal 
cross. A cross widely used by Slavs and 
others of Eastern rites has two transoms 

and a slanting crosspiece below. The 
Greek cross has equal arms. 

St. Andrew's cross is like an X; the 
Celtic, or Iona, cross bears a circle, the 
center of which is the crossing. The Mal- 
tese cross and the swastika are still more 

An example of artistic effort spent on 
crosses is seen in the monumental ones 
of market, town, and wayside in Europe 
and in cemeteries. Some of the finest art 
products of the Anglo-Saxons were stone 

Legends of the Cross 

The rich history of the cross is shroud- 
ed in legend and superstition. A crucifix 
was said to have shed blood in 1512, 
during an Easter Day battle between the 
French and Spanish. A statue of Christ 
on the cross reportedly performed heal- 
ing wonders during the Plague of Ma- 
laga in 1649. Legend also has it that 
when St. Francis of Assisi was praying, 
a voice from the crucifix told him, "Re- 
pair my house." He interpreted "house" 
to mean his own spiritual life, and hence- 
forth renounced his worldly goods and 
took up orders. And the old wives' tale 
still persists in some quarters that the 
gypsies are accursed because one of 
them, a way-faring metalsmith, made the 
nails that were used at the Crucifixion!

Even good drivers 

can be forced, into accidents! A 

hill-climbing truck ahead and a parade of honkers behind 
can try your patience. A tailgater with blazing lights can 
make you boil. But don't let them push you into a rash 
move. Traffic accidents killed 37,000 people last year. Who 
knows how many died because some good driver let another 
pressure him into taking a foolish chance? Don't let anger 
force you to risk lives— yours or others!

Arija Bergman 
Native of Latvia 

Ka tev labe klajas? 

The meaning of these words is prob- 
ably unknown to most Lebanon Valley 
College students, even to those most pro- 
ficient in Greek, German, French, or 
Russian courses. These words mean 
simply "How are you feeling?" in Lat- 
vian, the native tongue of freshman music 
major, Arija Bergman. 

Arija knows her native language much 
better than she knows her native country. 
The Bergman's left Latvia when Arija 
was three years old to enter a displaced 
persons' camp in Germany. From a list 
of free countries provided by the Ger- 
man government, Arija's family chose 
America to be their new home. 

In 1950 the Bergmans reached this 
country. All were unable to speak Eng- 
lish. Arija quickly began learning the 
new language in North Carolina schools. 
Her family had settled in this southern 
state near their sponsor. However, in 
1951 they came to Lebanon, Pennsyl- 
vania, where job opportunities were bet- 

Arija is now eighteen years old and 
plans to take her test for United States 
citizenship soon. She is very much 
American already, but she is an American 
with a good background in Latvian lan- 
guage and history. The Bergmans some- 
times celebrate November 18, Latvian In- 
dependence Day, with a small party. 
They speak Latvian regularly at home. 

The Latvian language, Arija explains, 
is almost a language by itself. A few 
of its words correspond to German. Its 
alphabet is written like ours but with the 
letters "q" and "y" omitted. This simi- 
larity to English is not an assurance that 
we could learn to speak Latvian quickly. 
Appearances are deceiving, for Latvians 
do not pronounce the letters as we do. 

If one wishes to impress friends with 
one's Latvian linguistic ability, why not 
begin one's next letter with "Ka tev labe 
klajas?" Avoid trying to ask this ques- 
tion orally, however, before seeing Arija 
for pronunciation lessons.

Fve Got a Problem 

Eight Solve Temple Teaser; 
Netv Puzzle Contains Fallacy 

Seven students and one faculty member submitted correct solutions to last 
issue's problem, the Gods of the Temple puzzle. The successful entrants were: 
Jim Corbett, Joseph Fox, David Grove, Carl Rife, Wayne Selcher, George Smith, 
Paul Young and Dr. Tom. 

The first god called the center god the God of Truth, and the center one called 
himself the God of Diplomacy. Therefore neither can be Truth, leaving that title 
for the god on the right. That means the statement of the last god is true; it said 
that the center statue was the God of Falsehood. That leaves only the first statue, 
which is, by elimination, the God of Diplomacy.

Court Lady huc\ 
On LV Tug Day 

Members of the Class of '64 may be 
interested to know how they stand in re- 
gard to the six classes before them who 
participated in the fray at the Quittie. 

The classes of '59 and '61 were win- 
ners of the Tug both as freshmen and 
as sophomores, with the frosh '59ers ac- 
complishing this with the odds against 
them on the banks of the stream. Be- 
cause of a flu epidemic during their 
freshman year, '61 passed up the cold 
Quittie waters and enjoyed their victory 
in the middle of campus. This means 
that '60 and '58 lost both of their Tugs. 

The present juniors surrendered to '61 
two years ago, but defeated the Class of 
1963 in the memorable pull of last Oc- 

sort, but can be just as frustrating. 
Where is the fallacy in this story? 

Seven wanderers all converged upon 
a simple hotel in a small western town 
one night and each demanded private 
lodging. However, the establishment con- 
tained only six rooms. 

The proprietor placed one man in 
room No. 1 and asked another man to 
wait there temporarily. He then put the 
third man in room No. 2, the fourth 
man in room No. 3, the fifth man in No. 
4 and the sixth man in No. 5. 

Then, returning to room No. 1, he 
took the seventh man and put him in 
No. 6. Thus each man had his own 
room and everyone was happy.

What, No Siesta? 

Student From Venezuela 
Attends Lebanon Valley 

Lee Lapioli comes to LVC from a 
community with the fascinating name of 
Valencia — Valencia, Venezuela. 

The very name of his home town sug- 
gests the aura of a romantic paradise. 
The enchantment dissolves, however, 
when dictatorship invades the scene. 
Venezuelans saw their happiness marred 
and their money drained by a dictator 
during the years between 1948 and 1958, 
when Lee graduated from high school. 

He moved to the United States one 
year ago. Before going on to college, he 
attended secondary school here also, and 
found the schedule of U. S. classes an 
interesting one. There were no siestas 
from eleven to two every day. 

Since his uncle resides in Annville, 
Lee chose Lebanon Valley as the insti- 
tution to prepare him for the career he 
anticipates in electronics, and entered the 
freshman class at the beginning of the 
second semester in 1960. 

Lee is a fellow of varied interests. He 
enjoys anything from television to danc- 
ing, in the tradition of all U. S. college 

Future May Combine Two Cultures 

A question mark punctuates his plans 
for the future. He may decide to return 
to Venezuela where his parents and sister 
are living. 

He may like to stay in the States 
where his brother, too, is attending school. 
Whatever his future may be, he considers 
himself fortunate in his opportunity to 
observe at close hand the elements of 
two rich national patterns of life. 

Lee is LV's successful testimony that 
one can navigate the cultural stream 
from Valencia to Valley — with or with- 
out siesta!

New Collegiate Slick 
To Make The Scene; 
Seeks Contributors 

The first bi-monthly issue of Collage 
magazine has gone on sale at bookstores 
and news stands at many campuses. The 
magazine was started by David Preiss, 
formerly of the University of Wisconsin 
and staff of Playboy magazine, and is 
subtitled "Entertainment and Enlighten- 
ment for College Eggheads." 

Material in the first issue includes a 
guest editorial by Dr. Robert M. Hut- 
chins, an article measuring the educa- 
tional benefits and drawbacks of the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, a study of the graphic 
art of woodcutting with a reproduction 
of a woodcut by student artist Gopal G. 
Mitra of the U. of Minnesota, and a 16- 
page insert devoted to Collage's new car- 
toonist discovery, Clayton D. Powers. 
Powers has since received offers from 
Harper's and Esquire for his captionless 

There are also reviews, short stories, 
bridge and chess columns and non-fiction 
departments the magazine calls "academ- 
ica," "aesthetica," "athletica," "poetica" 
and "CCC Camp." The last is a collec- 
tion of new items and features of special 
interest or importance to college stu- 
dents, and these are compiled from items 
in the collegiate press and from material 
submitted by College Campus Corre- 
spondents, students on various campuses 
across the nation who report to Collage 
and are listed on the staff page of the 
50c slick-paper magazine. 

Collage has also announced plans for 
a nation-wide student survey and a col- 
lege radio program which will be avail- 
able free to college stations on tape they 
provide. The Collage radio show will 
feature weekly half-hour programs of 
folk, jazz and classical music with com- 
ments and short interviews led by Col- 
lage emcees Al Lerman and Dick Ham- 
let. The staff has already begun the stu- 
dent survey by having correspondent ap- 
plicants answer such questions as "How 
could your college better fulfill the pur- 
poses of higher education?" 

A large-scale, nation-wide student sur- 
vey will be made during the month of 
November by College Campus Corre- 
spondents. Individual students will be 
polled and asked to list their preferences 
in music, art and literature, as well as 
fashions and other commodities. The 
study will be undertaken by CCC's for 
dual purposes of determining editorial 
and advertising facts for Collage. Results 
of this research will be made available 
to interested student, government and 
business organizations as well.

Remember, '61 ? 

Three years ago, the senior class came to this campus as green freshmen. 
Remember those first few nights in the dorm, getting to know each other, express- 
ing your own ideas about the whys and wherefores of college life? 

Remember Jay Catlin and Doug Ross? They were sophomores then. Who 
can forget them, barking orders as the frosh duckwalked their way from the library 
to the old dining hall every day at noon, quacking as they went. 

Remember the 3:00 a.m. hike? You weren't dropped out three or four miles. 
Everyone went at least as far as Indiantown Gap, and a few unlucky guys were 
left on the other side of Mt. Gretna. You knew what it meant to be initiated. 

Remember the day you were told to wear your clothes backwards as punish- 
ment for being "too cocky?" So you wore them backwards and inside out too, 
and plastered "Go '61" signs all over yourselves and the campus. You had a lit- 
tle spirit and imagination. 

You weren't afraid of the Senate or anyone else, although you knew the meaning 
of the word "respect." And you didn't revolt against initiation by simply refusing 
to cooperate. When the sophs told you to do something, you used your heads and 
improved on it, and showed the whole school that your class had real individuality. 

Remember those pep rallies? It took nearly five minutes for you to quiet 
down before the coach could speak; you weren't afraid to cheer your lungs out. 
Valley was your school, and you weren't ashamed to tell the world about it. 

Remember Bill Nixon and the rest of the frosh band? You didn't have to be 
organized by the college band drum major. Remember the nights you set up plan- 
ning your parades? You even wrote new marches to play — and you practiced un- 
til you could play them in tune. 

Remember when you were sophomores? Will you ever forget Terry DeWald's 
snare drum and the rest of the '62 band waking you out of a sound sleep by play-

from their march through Kreider Hall. '62 had spirit too. 

You have a lot to remember, '61 — the rallies, the pre-dawn hikes, even the 
duckwalking. But most of all, you can look back with pride to the time when your 
class learned the real reason for an initiation. In a few short months, you grew 
from high school boys into college men. (PHR)

Students Discuss 
Election Debates 

The television rooms around Lebanon 
Valley College were hardly as crowded 
during the World Series as they were 
during the first televised debate between 
candidates for President of the United 
States John F. Kennedy and Richard M. 
Nixon. The size of the crowds dwindled 
considerably after 
the novelty of the 
first debate, but sub- 
stantial numbers of 
students still turned 
out to watch the 
three remaining ver- 
bal disputes. 

Whether over or 
under voting age, 
most students have 


formed some opinion on the effective- 
ness of candidates in presenting their 
stands. Did the debates change many 
opinions toward the candidates? Were 
they a worthwhile part of the campaign? 

Sue Kelly: "I do think they were 
worthwhile because the people could at 
the same time hear both condidates. Peo- 
ple were not swayed by partisan news- 
papers. It made the campaign a little 
more objective. The televised debates 
familiarized me with some of the can- 
didates' ideas which I had not had time 
to read about." 

Ira Bechtel: "Personally, I don't think 
the debates influenced my feelings. They 
were worthwhile, however, since they 
displayed the candidates' views to a large 

Letitia Crispen: "I'm still for the same 
candidate. The debates are a good idea 
but issues should be limited to avoid de- 
trimental discussions such as the Que- 
moy-Matsu issue." 

Hakim Lys: "I think the debates did 
influence many people's thinking very 
much. They were worthwhile because 
they enabled one to hear the candidates' 
own point of view." 

Kay Steiner: "I think the debates were 
worthwhile even though they accomplish- 
ed nothing drastic. It made many peo- 
ple more aware of what was going on. 
Probably the debates won't influence the 
election too much, though. At least they 
helped show that free speech is still in 
vogue in America." 

Dave Pierce: "Watching the debates 
made me decide that I didn't care too 
much for either candidate. They didn't 
handle themselves as Presidental can- 
didates should." 

Dick Rhine: "Many points that would 
not have been brought out in the news- 
papers were brought out in the debates. 
It would be a good idea to continue them 
because they get more people interested 
in the campaign. My opinion of the can- 
didates was not changed by watching 
them on television." 


Letters to La Vie 

Refutes Prom Figures 

Dear Flat Broke: 

Since you are obviously not an eco- 
nomics major, I felt you might like to 
have an actual price list for the junior 
prom. Even though I am not entirely 
sold on the prom idea myself, I think 
your mathematics could use some cor- 

This is a list of the costs for the aver- 
age fellow who is going, with his date, 
to the junior prom. 

$ 4.00 — ticket price per couple 
7.50 — average tuxedo rental 
3.12 — average corsage price (tax in- 

4.00 — post-dance refreshments and 

auto expenses 

$18.12— total 

As you can see, these prices are the 
average. They may vary greatly accord- 
ing to the limitation of an individual's 

I left out the $8.62 in "Flat Broke's" 
list because the student does not have to 
spend this. It comes from the combined 
resources of the junior class and the 
Faculty-Student Council. In addition, a 
corsage may be purchased for as little as 
$2.60, plus tax. 

I would like to point out that the ac- 
tual cost to the student has increased 
only $.25, the amount the ticket price 
has been raised. 


(In defense of the previous letter writ- 
er, his inclusion of the $8.62 figure was 
based on the fact that the resources of 
the junior class and the Faculty-Student 
Council are originally student money, 
coming from dues, the activities fee, etc. 

The Freshman Doth Protest 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

The editorial in the October 15 edi- 
tion, "A Suggestion," struck me as being 
one of the most unconvincing pieces of 
editorial writing I have yet seen. I was 
unable to get any notion of the real cause 
for all-sophomore White Hat groups. 

In the first paragraph the editorialist 
states that she will "set forth a descrip- 
tion of the main things sought after dur- 
ing an introductory process of this kind, 
and some modifications of the present 
setup which may remedy some of this 
year's problems along this line." 

Then she sets forth a group of un- 
usually vague generalizations, such as an 
"attitude of receptiveness ..." and a "dis- 
play of personality." A class does not 
have an independent personality of its 
own; it reflects the opinions and person- 
alities of its leaders and surroundings. 

I agree that the freshman must "pre- 
pare himself for the unexpected; . . . learn 
to think quickly and imaginatively." 
Quick and imaginative thinking are gen- 
erally of little use while participating in 
enforced calisthenics, and are not likely 
to be developed by such activities. . . 

Miss Kauffman complains of a lack of 
rebellion. Against whom can we rebel? 
If we revolt against the White Hats, the 
Senate will get us. If we rebel against 
the Senate, the Administration will get 
us.. . 

I understand that the class of 1963 re- 
volted. What did it get them? It got 
them an end to frosh frolics as well as 
much of their prestige as a class, to say 
nothing of killing their chances to act 
as initiators for '64. 

I agree that the White Hat program 
was not tough enough to cause a desper- 
ate rebellion, but such a rebellion, in 
view of last year's situation, would prob- 
ably have ended freshman initiations at 
this institution for good. I say that the 
attitude of '64 has been a mature re- 
sponse to an inevitable stimulus. 

'64 has been confronted with such a 
maze of laws, regulations and penalties 
that it is often difficult to tell what the 
right thing to do in a given situation may 
be. For instance, the freshman band was 
shooed away from Kreider Hall on Un- 
derclassmen's Day by one of the Kreider 
Hall counsellors, on the flimsy excuse 
that the football players had been order- 
ed to sleep. . .

White Hat rules, and especially a writ-

Choir Deserves Wider Horizons 

Lebanon Valley College possesses one of the finest musical organizations in 
the state, the Concert Choir. Each year this select group of voices travels to such 
cities as Baltimore and Philadelphia to present their concerts. 

However, these programs are confined to churches and similar gathering places, 
limited in their acoustical properties and seating space. Because of the talent of 
the Choir's members and the skill of its director, Dr. Thurmond, the tour is always 
deeply appreciated by the host churches, and the name of Lebanon Valley spreads 
a little further. 

Nevertheless, it is unfortunate that during the tour, no concerts are presented 
at any recognized auditoriums or halls in any of the large cities visited. The long 
hours of practice, while by no means wasted, are stifled by the limitations of the 

The choir from a college not too far from LVC will present a Town Hall 
concert in New York this year. The music department at the institution in question 
does not compare with ours, yet they will gain an immeasurable sense of accom- 
plishment as well as prestige from their appearance. 

It would be feasible for Lebanon Valley to arrange a similar New York pro- 
gram at least once in every four years. There is no reason why the name of this 
college should not be carried to the recognized concert halls of America. 

We are fortunate to possess a fine music faculty and to attract students of the 
highest calibre to the conserv. If our reputation is to grow, our talents must be 
heard. (PHR) 

Ten 'Foot 'Radius World 

From the BULLETIN, Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, Kansas: 

Not too long ago, the juke boxes across America were telling the heartrending 
story of a teen-aged lad who said he didn't know much about history, geography, or 
trigonometry, but that he did know one thing: that he loved his girl, and if she 
would only love him too, "what a wonderful world it would be." 

Unfortunately, there are too many Americans who show this sort of thinking, 
or lack of thinking. In an age of jet aircraft, guided missiles, and world-wide com- 
munication, many of us Americans still consider the limits of our world as ten feet 
in any direction from where we happen to be at the moment. 

When we're in high school, we don't read the newspapers because we don't 
want to be "different." 

When we get to college, we don't pay any attention to the rest of the world 
because we're too busy trying to get into the "sharpest" Greek organization, or 
slaving to buy a new car or to dress according to Seventeen Magazine. 

After graduation from college, we've got to get into the "best" clubs and buy 
a home in Country Club Heights. 

It is very nice when our world is so limited, because then we don't think we 
will be bothered by such things as hydrogen bombs that could turn the world into 
a pile of dust, or the spread of Communism which, if not checked, could engulf 
the world in a new Dark Age. 

Hydrogen bombs won't spare Country Club Heights any more than Main 
Street, and members of the "sharpest" fraternity or sorority won't be any safer than 
members of other Greek organizations or Independents. 

Nobody's little ten-foot-radius world is safe under present conditions. And it 
won't be safe until everyone starts thinking about something other than himself 
long enough to start changing the conditions. (ACP) 

Warning: Sharp Curves Ahead 

As mid-semesters roll around, the pen writes heavily in the roll book and 
the shadow of the bell-shaped curve is cast upon the college once again. 

The importance of this system is well-known to every student and professor 
affected by it. It has become as vital to education as testing itself. This editorial 
discusses briefly the curve system as a useful measuring tool, and further, as a 
powerful mechanism which has claimed servile devotion from students and teachers 
in high schools and colleges throughout the nation. 

As an instrument for measuring the range of scores, the mean score, and the 
resulting grade distribution, the curve protects students from loss when teacher- 
student misunderstandings of the wording of questions occurs. A too-difficult test 
or an especially easy one is redeemed by the curve, creating more lenient standards 
of grading for the former and stiffer ones for the latter. All of this is justice for 
the student. These advantages of the system make it indispensable in many cases. 

The curve is also a great equalizer, obliging a class roll book to indicate a 
majority of C's, even if a highly intelligent group of A and B students would com- 
pose the class. Even there, some would fail. In a college such as LVC where many 
classes are small, the question arises: does the theory of regression to the mean 
work on such a small scale? Are students forced to mediocrity by a system which 
fits individuals to a mathematical scale rather than one which assigns a certain 
percentage of achievement? 

There is a psychological effect which has developed because of the extensive use 
of the curve. Once the students realize its implications, the impulse to group dis- 
cussion and exchange of information in preparing for a test is quickly repressed. 
Each realizes that his success in the exam depends upon how much (and preferably 
how little) the other fellow knows. To contribute to another's understanding may 
contribute to the development of a "curve-breaker." If, however, knowledge is 
hoarded, the student himself may win the A. We are competing against persons 
rather than seeking a standard of excellence. 

Is the widespread use of the curve worthy of our devotion, or should it be lim- 
ited to classes such as LS. 20 and LS. 30 where a large number of students are 
involved and a true average is more likely to take form? Or should it be reserved 
for national exams such as College Boards and National Merit Scholarship tests? 
Would it have more validity there? 

Clearly, the bell-shaped curve has its place. Perhaps we should address 
ourselves to the matter of putting it there. (JMK)

Dickinson Anticipates Strong 
LV Running And Passing 

Dickinson, October 27 — Coach Don Seibert is working on two tough problems 
this week as he points his faltering Dickinson College eleven toward Saturday's 
game here with once-defeated Lebanon Valley. 

The tougher of the two problems, he admits, is finding a defense that can 
withstand the running of Lebanon Valley's two fine halfbacks, Les Holstein and 
Vera Magnuson, who are playing their fourth year of varsity ball. 

Magnuson, whose 83-yard kickoff return for a touchdown sparked the Dutch- 
men to their 22-16 victory over Moravian last week, and his teammate are the 
rushing leaders of the Northern College division of the Middle Atlantic Conference. 

Coach Seibert's other worry is pass defense. Dickinson's inability to check the 
enemy in the air has figured in a big way in all three of its defeats to date. 

Lebanon Valley has a promising freshman quarterback in Wes MacMillan, a 
Shippensburg native who played for Big Spring High. The coming game will be 
his first performance this season so close to home, which may act as an extra 
incentive for a fine performance. 

"Our defense against running plays last week was much better than the one- 
sided score indicates," said the Dickinson coach. "It's pass defense that really 
worries me." 

Dickinson, which lost to LV by a 15-6 score last season, expects an improved 
running game with the recovery of halfbacks Bob Harlowe and Jack Thomas, 
absent from recent games due to illness. 

Dickinson has lost Don Pasquale, a sophomore end, for the balance of the 
season as the result of a knee injury last week, but this loss of man power has been 
off set in part by the return of Allen Bair, 240-pound freshman tackle, who sat out 
the Wagner game. 

Learning To Spot A Bargain 
Can Mean Substantial Saving 

Want a trip to Europe? A hi-fi set? A backyard swimming pool? 

If you're that rare shopper who knows exactly how to get all the value his 
dollar will buy, you can probably afford one big luxury, and certainly many small 
ones, that you don't see how you can swing. And you can do it without stinting on 

The tricks are few and simple. Five principles can help you squeeze more 
interest from the most monotonously inflexible income. 

First, learn the signs of quality for 
every item you buy. Some men, in the 
market for a suit, look for hand sewing 
in buttonholes and at the wrist end of a 
sleeve lining. Actually these so-called 
signs of quality, often put in just to im- 
press the public, may reveal nothing 
about the overall quality of the suit! 
Hand sewing at the armhole ends of a 
jacket is more important. Here, small 
hand stitches do much to make the suit 
a more comfortable fit. 

Moral: before you buy, take the trou- 
ble to find out which "signs of quality" 
are important, which irrelevant. The 
method of carpet construction means lit- 
tle; what matters is thickness of pile, 
durability of fiber, strength of backing. 
In electrical appliances, the indispensable 
sign of quality is the UL label — the guar- 
antee that it's been tested and found safe 
by Underwriters' Laboratories. 

Second, get the core of what you want. 
Whatever the item, pay only for essen- 
tials, not for non-functional frills. You 
might be able to build that dream home 
after all if you'll eliminate architectural 
complications, such as split levels, sky- 
lights and dormers, long hallways, made- 
to-order windows, that add nothing to 
the basic quality of the house. 

An auto manufacturer recently illus- 
trated this point. To produce a car that 
embodied the most advanced engineering 
features and yet could sell at an econ- 
omy price, he kept the car body design 
as simple and unadorned as possible. 

Result: a car, priced at $1295.00, that 
has front wheel drive and independent 
suspension. The engine is mounted in 
such a way as to make the mechanic's 
inspection job easier, and to make 80% 
of the car's space available for passen- 
gers and luggage. Three feet shorter than 
even a Volkswagen, the Austin "850" 
has been tailored to provide comfortable 
riding space for four passengers. 

Third, don't assume that the higher- 
priced item is better. A shoe store, ex- 
perimenting with customer psychology, 
once priced two pairs of shoes, identical 
except for color, a dollar apart. Con- 
fronted with this choice, the majority of 
buyers actually preferred to pay the 
higher price. 

Though you'll probably never walk off 
with a similar buy, you'll often find that 
the lower-priced of two items meets your 
needs more than adequately. This is par- 
ticularly true of commodities like canned 
foods, drugs, shaving cream and cosmet- 
ics, which must meet rigid government 

Ever pass up the dented food cans 

sold at reduced prices in super-markets? 
The food inside a sealed can retains the 
same quality, dent or no dent. The worst 
that can happen inside a dented can is 
that two peach halves become four peach 

But spend more to get more when you 
must. Stainless steel utensils may cost 
more than plated ware, but they'll last 
three or four times as long. The same 
holds true for plated copper or brass ver- 
sus the real thing. 

The most attractive on-sale "bargain" 
is worthless if it induces you to pass up 
a full-price item you can really use in 
favor of a reduced item you don't actu- 
ally need. Incidentally, always try to 
check the validity of the price reduction. 
Beware any merchant who claims to be 
selling all his wares for half-price or less; 
he can't make even a tiny profit on such 
a reduction. 

"Reduced from $10.95" means just 
what it says; "list price $10.95" means 
only that the manufacturer suggested 
$10.95 as the price retailers should 
charge for his product. On some kinds 
of items, especially appliances, the retail 
price includes service. Before assuming 
that the lower price at another store is a 
bargain, compare the installation and re- 
pair services offered. 

Get whatever you can gratis. You'd 
be amazed how many perfectly reputable 
products and services are yours for the 
asking — or for a nominal fee. Many food 
and beverage companies offer free recipe 
booklets to the housewife. Many depart- 
ment stores maintain Home Planning 
Centers which give free decorating ad-

ten statement of their aims and policies 
for the initiation, would be welcomed, 
and might rule out such situations in the 
future. . . 

Now we come to the point of the edi- 
torial: "Sophomores should constitute the 
White Hats. . . It seems clear that only a 
sophomore has the unique temperament 
,. . . to arouse in freshmen a healthy re- 
spect for the experience he is beginning." 
What is this unique temperament of the 
sophomore? I doubt that it is directed 
toward preparing the freshmen for aca- 
demic burdens and responsibilities. The 
average sophomore . . . would just like to 
have a good time at the freshmen's ex- 
pense. . . 

In closing, I will just say that we, the 
freshmen, apologize for not giving the 
White Hats as much trouble as '63 gave 
'62, but we will try to change our ways, 
and will perhaps learn to act irrationally 
in the future. 


Mr. Webster, Take Note 
To the Editors of La Vie: 

For the benefit of confused spellers 
like myself and for dedicated German 
students, I would like to impart the cor- 
rect spelling of the freshman men's 

The authority for my findings is the 
inscription beneath the portrait of the 
Rev. Lawrence K-e-i-s-t-e-r in the office 
of President Miller. The late Rev. Keis- 
ter was a president of LVC from 1907- 

This orthography does not indicate the 
usual ei pronunciation, which has a long 
i sound, while the German ie takes the 
long e sound found in Mr. Keister's 

We can, however, take this discrepancy 
in our stride, I suppose, since for a long 
time we have been learning other lan- 
guage mutations and inconsistencies in 
the King's jive. 


For Whom the Bell Tolls 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

Traditions on every campus change as 
new generations move into the college. 
Most LV students are unaware of the 
"murder" which annually entertained 
campus and town alike. The society 
weekend plays have been replaced by 
skits; May Day activities have been de- 
emphasized. This year the White Hats 
were placed in charge of the freshman 
initiation, rather than the usual sophs. 

Alumni tend to be sentimental about 
the traditions which ruled the campus in 
their day, and often deplore their loss. 
But it is natural that changes should oc- 
cur with the passage of time. 

One of Lebanon Valley's oldest tradi- 
tions was noticeably missing on Home- 
coming Day: the ringing of the college 
clock. Unlike most traditions, however, 
the half-hourly ringing served a prac- 
tical purpose, that of keeping the col- 
lege, and incidentally, the town, on time 
to their activities. 

I would like to hear those old chimes. 
Would somebody please fix the clock?

Dutchmen Outrun Greyhounds 

Magnuson Drives 83 Yards For Last Quarter TD 

Bouncing back from the 27-12 Homecoming defeat at the hands of Muhlen- 
berg, the Flying Dutchmen dumped Moravian 22-16 on the opponent's own field, 
October 22. 

Vera Magnuson turned the tide of the game in the fourth quarter, taking the 
ball on the kickoff and covering 83 yards to make the goal.

Moravian Team 4-1 

The Lebanon Valley Girls' hockey 
team won its final two games of the sea- 
son against Dickinson, October 12 and 
Moravian, October 22. 

The Dickinson team scored only two 
goals in the former contest, one in each 
half. Both were made by Sue Pasteur. 
Joan Myers scored four tallies for LV, 
two in each half, and Gloria Fitzgee add- 
ed two more to make the total 6-2. 

In the Moravian meet, Andrea Auf 
der Hyde made the only goal for the op- 
posing team in the first half. Joan Myers 
made Valley's first score in the first, and 
the latter half saw one goal apiece made 
by Regina Juno, Kaye Cassel and Carol 
Baxter. The final score was 4-1.

Color Used To Best Advantage 
Accentuates Wearer s Attributes 

The subtle use of color to enhance good features and disguise flaws has long 
been one of the most effective beautifiers known to women. The following hints 
and suggestions are designed to guide the would-be fashion plate in matching her 
wardrobe to her own individual features. 

Jewelry and clothing are cosmetics, 
and should be worn as such. Palefaces 
appear less so if pastel shades are worn 
near the face, more pallid by contrast 
with a very vivid red or with unrelieved 
black or white. 

If you have any tendency to sallow- 
ness, avoid most browns, yellows and 
yellow-greens. Instead, wear blue or 
white near your face — a blouse, or just 
a string of pearls or turquoise-hued 
beads. Pearls, by the way, are particular- 
ly flattering to girls with delicate fea- 

Figure as well as face can be flattered 
in dozens of different ways by the 
shrewd use of color. Are you petite? 
Your dress should be a solid color, with 
contrasting accent touches in the form of 
jewelry, handbag or collar. 

Bold checks or stripes, or blouse and 
skirt in different colors, make you appear 
even shorter than you are. If you're tall, 
spin the color wheel in just the opposite 

On the plump side? Give horizontal 
stripes a wide berth. Tall and thin? Nev- 
er nod your head up and down when the 
salesgirl shows you a costume with verti- 
cal stripes. 

Not only do dark colors whittle the 
figure while light or bright colors spot- 
light excess pounds, but even the way 
you match your accessories to your cos- 
tume can make you look slimmer or 

Certain color combinations — black 
with touches of white, red with gold jew- 
elry — look so "right" that they've become 
classic. But don't be afraid to experi- 
ment with less orthodox blends. 

The jewel tones of blue and green, for 
example, look wonderful together. Com- 
binations of pink and red beautified the 
paintings of Henri Matisse, acclaimed as 
one of the 20th century's leading decora- 
tive artists. 

Avoid other color cliches. Redheads 
can look attractive in many shades of 
red and pink — provided their own com- 
plexions aren't too florid. Many blondes 
steer clear of biege because they feel it 
washes them out, but clever use of eye 
shadow and rouge may provide the add- 
ed color that will enable them to wear 
even the palest tans. Experiment — don't 
reject a possible color choice till you've 
tried on the garment. 

Your best color is partly a matter of 
your own hair and skin coloring, partly 
a matter of temperament. No one's de- 
nying that olive-skinned brunettes are us- 
ually stunning in red, or that a fair, rosy- 
cheeked complexion seems even more 
flower-like against a forest-green dress. 
But it's the hue in which you feel most 
attractive that enables you to come 
through with flying colors. Don't be 
afraid to build your wardrobe around 
one favorite color. It's a money-saver. 

Richards Joins 
Valley Faculty 

Dr. Benjamin A. Richards has joined 
the political science and philosophy staff 
of Lebanon Valley College. 

After completing undergraduate work 
at Wesleyan, he obtained a master's de- 
gree in political science and a doctorate 
in philosophy at Yale. 

Dr. Richards has taught at Upsala Col- 
lege, Southern Connecticut State College, 
and Quinnipiac College. He is a mem- 
ber of the American Philosophers Asso- 
ciation, the American Academy of Po- 
litical and Social Sciences, Phi Beta Kap- 
pa, and the American Association of 
University Professors. 

Dr. Richards is married and the father 
of a three-year-old son. 

Mrs. Pottieger Joins 
Psychology Department 

Instructing her first classes in psychol- 
ogy at LVC this year is Mrs. Elizabeth 
Pottieger. Graduated from Albright with 
a B.A. and from Temple with an M.A., 
she is now conducting general and de- 
velopmental psychology classes. 

Mrs. Pottieger's husband is the pastor 
of St. Paul's Church in Lebanon, where 
they reside. "So you see," she added 
with a smile, "I'm also a preacher's wife 
and, believe me, that's almost another 
profession in itself." She is also the 
mother of five children, four girls and 
one boy, ages seven to sixteen. 

When the interviewer was surprised 
at the number of children, she laughed 
and remarked, "That's one of my pet 
peeves. Saying you have five children 
usually brings on a startled look. People 
must think it's freakish or something. 
Then usually I get that look which says 
'Why aren't you home taking care of 
them?' " 

A knowledge of psychology has helped 
her as a minister's wife. "So often the 
problems that people have are due to a 
lack of understanding. Living in a par- 
sonage, I have learned the personal prob- 
lems of many people and to be able to 
help these persons, I needed a better un- 
derstanding of problems myself. And so, 
as I learned more of psychology, I be- 
came interested in teaching it." 

As for outside activities, Mrs. Pottie- 
ger has participated in church choirs. 
"There are so many other things I am 
interested in but can not do for lack of 
time," she sighed, "but my family comes 
first and taking care of five children is 
another full-time job." 

Professor Newall Brings 
English, Music, Puppies 
To LVC Faculty Post 

The new face in the English 10 classes 
this year is a man of varied abilities and 
is a discerning analyst of the fields in 
which he takes an interest. Mr. Robert 
Newall comes to LVC with a wealth of 
teaching experience and a colorful array 
of outside interests. 

He received the B.A. and M.A. de- 
grees from the University of Pennsylva- 
nia and studied for a time at Johns Hop- 
kins University. He taught previously at 
Norwich College, Vermont, William and 
Mary College, Virginia, and at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, including the Hei- 
delberg, Germany, armed service exten- 
sion of that school. Besides English, he 
has taught history and speech. 

Mr. Newall is a native of Philadelphia, 
and comes from a family which can trace 
its ancestry to colonial America. He has 
traveled widely, and is particularly en- 
thusiastic about New England in this 
country, and France and Italy abroad. 
Certain parts of Europe fascinate him, 
partly because of his interest in opera; 
he enjoys hearing operas performed in 
their native lands. 

Besides teaching, the new assistant pro- 
fessor is an opera and drama critic. He 
writes for several Vermont newspapers 
and for Opera, a London publication. An 
authority on music, he attended the Phil- 
adelphia Conservatory of Music, where 
he studied organ, a pursuit which he 
is now continuing at LVC with Mr. 
Pierce Getz. Mr. Newall is also a teach- 
er of piano. 

While in Europe, Mr. Newall met his 
wife, whose hometown is Tubingen, Ger- 
many. A German teacher and interpre- 
ter, Mrs. Newall will become a United 
States citizen sometime next year. She 
has taught in the New York Biblical 

Puppies, Anyone? 

Along with music and travel, Mr. 
Newall lists as a favorite hobby the 
breeding and training of German Shep- 
herd dogs. His two pets, Caesar and 
Siegfried, are father and son. Siegfried 
recently sired two puppies which are for 
sale; Mr. Newall wishes to advertise this 
fact and welcomes prospective dog own- 

The Newalls are much interested in 
religion and are affiliated with the Pres- 
byterian Church. Mr. Newall attributes 
this interest partly to a minister whom 
he admires: "Dr. Donald Barnhouse, pas- 
tor of the Tenth Presbyterian Church, 
Philadelphia, has been one of the big in- 
fluences in my life." 

The new member of the English de- 
partment remarks that he is "very happy 
indeed to be here," and is impressed by 
the "seriousness of purpose on the part 
of the students," balanced by a "healthy, 
robust nature." 

I've Got a Problem 


Homecoming -1900 

Seven Trace Vanishing Man; 
Two Logic Puzzles Offered 

In last week's traveler puzzle, the gentleman who was asked to wait in room 
number one was referred to as the second man in the first statement, then became the 
seventh man in the end. Since he was both numbers two and seven, only six men 
were placed in the inn. 

Seven students submitted correct solutions to the problem: Joe Clark, Dave 
Czirr, Dave Grove, Jim Gruber, Carol Jimenez, Wayne Selcher and Paul Young. 
In the unlikely possibility that this puzzle did not offer enough challenge, the follow- 
ing is offered. 

Simple logics will provide the solution 
to this one. Fred, Bob, Jim and Frank 
were practicing for the frosh-soph tug of 
war. With some difficulty, Bob could just 
outpull Fred and Jim together. Bob and 
Fred were exactly stalemated with Jim 
and Frank. However, if Fred and Jim 
changed places, then Frank and Fred 
won easily. 

Who was the strongest, the next 
strongest, etc.? 

Distance is Sought 
Still not satisfied? Assume a 12-inch 
long-playing record has grooves that start 
a quarter-inch from the outside edge 
and finish with the last groove having a 
five-inch diameter. If there are 120 
grooves per inch, how far does the nee- 
dle travel whle playing the entire rec- 

Solutions, including step-by-step pro- 
cedure, may be placed in the La Vie 
mailbox in the Student Personnel Office 
before November 6. 

Lebanon Valley's Homecoming celebra- 
tion saw sophomore Ken Girard (above 
left) in two poses. After a muddy dunking 
in the Quirtie, he drove one of the con- 
vertibles which carried the royal court 
to and from the field at half time (be- 
low). Also making an appearance was a 
spokesman from Kap La Sig (ridden by 
Dean Wetzel) advertising their upcoming 
jazz concert.

Smart Suggestions 
For Baby-Bouncers 

The college girl frequently turns to 
baby-sitting as a means of padding her 
draining pocketbook. This is usually a 
real adventure, but occasionally the child 
proves to be cooperative. To help her to 
cope with this problem, we have con- 
sulted one of the latest manuals on baby- 
sitting. We now offer the following ex- 
cerpt from Chapter 169 (or, 13 2 ), entitled 
"The Importance of Being Adaptable," 
or "What to Do When the Kid Behaves." 

For once, Sylvester has slipped silently 
to Slumberland — and you are left, as the 
saying goes, "holding the bag." Now 
what about you? What do you do to 
while away these energy-filled moments? 

You miss the "knock-down-drag-out" 
Battle of Bedtime, don't you? You miss 
the physical relapse that used to set you 
sleeping till the door swung open and the 
Sylvesters, Senior, swept in again. And 
now you are wondering how to conquer 
this "brave new world" of boredom. 

To answer your queries, we have com- 
piled extensive empirical data concern- 
ing the constructive consumption of cus- 
todial leisure. This quiet time is your 
opportunity for creative activity. And 
we do urge you to be creative. Discover 
the stimulation of solitude. 

1. As a starter, do try lanyard weav- 
ing. Nothing satisfies so deeply as the 
sight of a veritable spectrum of colors 
twining and mingling, in the best tradi- 
tion of modern sociology, to produce an 
effect of unqualified perceptual pleasure. 
One reservation we feel constrained to 
express: bring your own gimp. 

2. This is an exercise in mental disci- 
pline. Sit back in an easy chair, relax, 
and count the designs in the folds of the 
drapes on the window across the room. 
Now try it without your abacus. 

3. Develop your enthusiasm for yoga. 
Of course, you will have memorized the 
positions beforehand. You are using this 
time to enhance facility, stability, sen- 

4. Outline a lecture in which you will 
explain e=mc 2 to an accelerated group 
of first-graders. 

Fall Fashions Feature 
Vivid Colors, Brevity 

Possibly the most popular of the new 
fall colors are the varied hues of purple, 
ranging from lavender to deep violet. 
Purple plaid skirts with purple sweaters 
are typical LVC library attire, as well 
as the ever-present bermudas and slacks. 

Another new fashion, the "knee-tick- 
ler," is gaining supporters among Valley 
women. These are skirts which stop just 
at the knee, or even above on some of 
their more daring advocates. "Knee- 
ticklers" are worn in the classroom and 
on dates as well as for more casual acti- 

With the winter winds howling around 
the Ad building, the ladies are relying 
on raccoon-collared coats to keep them 
warm. Many feel that this style is more 
practical for winter than many fashions 
that have come along in recent years. 

Vests are the newest fad in the male 
department. A careful observer may see 
them in a range of colors from conser- 
vative gray to the more popular red 

Big, bulky sweaters are still worn by 
the fellows, which makes most of the 
girls happy. A wide variety of styles are 
worn, the most popular being the plain 
or striped models. 

These newest fads, however, are not 
the most common sight on campus. The 
traditional sneakers and trench coats will 
no doubt be around for a long time to 
come. The reason is a simple one: prac- 
ticality. (SD) 

5. Prove you exist. 

6. Recite to yourself your favorite 
nursery rhyme. Using your background 
in Freudian psychology, analyze your 
reasons for liking it. 

From here you should be anxious to 
carry on with your own ideas on creative 
cogitation. Be daring! Be original! Be 
the exceptional individual that you are! 
\s your proficiency develops, you may 
find yourself freed from the paltry pres- 
sures of material gain and supported by 
*he public in padded quarters. And all be- 
cause you dared to be a baby-si'ter!

Symphony Will Perform 
Couperin and Chopin; 
Pickwell To Be Soloist 

The Symphony Orchestra of the de- 
partment of music will present its first 
concert of the year Tuesday, Novem- 
ber 22, at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall with 
Thomas Lanese, conductor, and featur- 
ing Marcia Pickwell, piano soloist. The 
admission for the concert will be $1.00 
for the general public and $.50 for stu- 

The program will include the Over- 
ture and Allegro by Couperin, arranged 
by Milhaud. This work is among some 
of the Baroque music which has been 
written for modern orchestra. Following 
this selection will be the First Piano 
Concerto in E minor by Chopin with 
Marcia Pickwell, pianist. 

This was one of Chopin's early com- 
positions written after he had gone to 
Paris to play for the royalty. The first 
movement is a lyrical section while the 
second movement is in the form of a 
noctourne. After this performance, the or- 
chestra will play the Jupiter Symphony

All-Campus Art Exhibition 
Will Honor Student Work 

For the purpose of promoting interest in creative art among LVC students, an 
exhibit of paintings and sketches will be placed in the audio-visual room of the 
library from November 29 to December 14. Entries will be limited to the under- 
graduate students of Lebanon Valley, and prizes will be awarded for superior work. 

Students may indicate their intention 
to participate by completing the applica- 
tion blank on page five and placing it in 
the La Vie mailbox or submitting it di- 
rectly to Miss Gail Bull, chairman of 
the display. Entries should be prepared 
by the artists and must be in the hands 
of the chairman no later than Decem- 
ber 5. 

The judges, Miss Fencil, Mrs. Faber 
and Mr. Batchelor, will select the three 
finest works on the basis of imagina- 
tion, creativity and mechanical applica- 
tion of the artistic medium. The contest 
is limited to oils, pastels, sketches and 
the like. Three prizes, totalling $10.00 in 
all, will be awarded to the winners. 

The results of the contest will be re- 
ported in the December 15 issue of La 
Vie, and the winning entries will be fur- 
ther displayed at an appropriate place on 
the campus. If possible, they will also 
be exhibited in an art supply store in the 
area. All other entries will be returned 
to the artists before Christmas vacation. 

This contest will mark the first oppor- 
tunity for the campus to view the works 
of students alone. The success of this 
venture and the possibility of making 
it an annual occurrence will depend upon 
the participation of the students.

Mealtime M 

There are those of us on campus and in America who prefer to believe that 
some areas of life can proceed successfully without dictation and regulation by 
authorities. We would like to believe this not only of matters regarding our per- 
sonal lives, but of many national affairs also. However, evidence that our faith 
in the autonomy and self-governing ability of human beings is well-founded is often 
hard to find. 

LVC students, for example, cannot even conduct themselves admirably in the 
potentially pleasant practice of eating in the dining hall. Must the dining hall com- 
mittee mimeograph, kindergarten-style, a list of maxims to follow when gathering in 
the lobby and making one's way to the tables? Many girls (as well as fellows) 
have been inexcusably pushed and shoved through doors or to and from coat han- 
gers, and otherwise poorly treated upon arrival for meals in the evenings. 

Pangs Should Not Produce Panic 

Since we do eat three meals a day at Lebanon Valley, we should exhibit bet- 
ter control of hunger pangs than would a herd of starving savages. It seems hardly 
necessary that we need to fight, as if for survival, practically trampling each other 
underfoot to get at the food. 

If we would arrive for dinner at 5:55 and not before, proceeding directly to 
the tables, the congestion would modulate to a flow. Furthermore, if table heads 
would organize four men and four women at a table, where possible, and main- 
tain groups of essentially the same people, the mad rush for a cherished seat would 
be upgraded into an orderly filing into the hall with no wandering around. All-male 
or all-femal ecliques would disappear as well. 

This failing, the widespread (and somewhat reactionary) suggestion has been 
made by the girls that ladies, upon arriving at 5:55 sharp, should precede the gentle- 
men to the tables. Fellows would remain in the lobby for perhaps two minutes 
while the girls enter. 

Waiters Cringe At Cafeteria-Style Meals 

The cafeteria-style meals must be pure frustration for waiters who clear the 
tables. Recently at least five tables were observed on one side of the dining hall 
with less than half of the chairs occupied in every case. Even so, students gravitated 
to still other empty tables rather than filling in the others. This happens consistently 
at cafeteria meals. Are we producing a school of mannerless anti-socials? The 
dining hall authorities eliminated the "traffic cop" head waiters who directed each 
student to a table, in the belief that this was unnecessary. Must such a regulator be 
re-instated so that waiters do not have to place on all of the tables numerous un- 
needed pitchers, kecthup bottles, and the like? Or to save the waiters from clearing 
used tables all over the hall when actually only half are really required? 

If college students cannot conduct themselves without police-like dictation in 
such simple matters as politeness and consideration, how can any of us possibly 
muster any faith in the ability of a whole nation to order itself effectively without 
stringent government controls? 

The restrictions dominant in the dining hall in past years have been lifted. 
Many of us found those rules offensive to our "ability to govern ourselves." We 
learned as nations learn that such decrees can be abusively enforced with discipline 
carried to an extreme. 

If Americans can be counted upon to behave en masse as some of us do in 
matters of etiquette, we should not be surprised when candidates for federal offices 
promise us strict controls and are cheered for it. We cheer those who undertake 
to think for us and direct our ways; and we realize too late that in so doing we have 
lost a certain dignity. (JMK)

Letters to La Vie 

A Sophomore Talks Back 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

It seems to me that the letter to this 
paper in the issue of October 27 entitled 
"The Freshman Doth Protest" was obvi- 
ously from a biased and slightly disil- 
lusioned member of the class of 1964. 
I think there is no more than pure class 
sentiment as a basis for his arguments 
against the editor and the initiation pro- 

..itially, our "frosh friend" seems to 
think that Miss Kauffman's complaint of 
a lack of rebellion in this present fresh- 
man class is totally absurd. In a small 
way he might be considered justified in 
making such a statement. I could find 
no serious reason why the frosh would 
have found it necessary to rebel. 

In my opinion, this year's initiation 
program was only slightly more than a 
glorified lawn party. I will agree that 
strenuous physical exercises do little to 
transform high school "children" into 
college men and women. However, such 
activities as a full week of silly costumes 
or carrying books in idiotic containers, 
as was done last year, would have done 
more good than "frosh frolics." 

Our "frosh friend" is not justified in 
criticizing the class of 1963 for their no- 
torious revolt. In previous years, the 
freshman class that was not tempted to 
rebel was seldom seen. Consequently, 
when the class of '63 was being initiated 
into the campus life of this college, the 
almost inevitable rebellion occurred. 

The spirit of rebellion (perhaps this 
is what Miss Kauffman had in mind) 
gripped the class of '63. But the unfor- 
tunate result was the fault of the weak 
initiation program. The entire class of 
'62 did not support the efforts of a few 
initiators; the program collapsed be- 
cause the sophs let the frosh get away 
with their revolt. 

I would like to point out that I did 
not intend to use this incident af\ a 
means of criticizing the present junior 
class. I merely wanted to defend the 
actions of '63. Last year's revolt did not 
make our class better or worse than pre- 
vious classes. Any other class would 
have done the same under similar cir- 

Once again let me return to our "frosh 
friend." He seems to think that the 
"maze of laws, regulations and penal- 
ties" was an excessive burden on the 
shoulders of the members of his class. 
May I point out that this year's list of 
rules was only one-third to one-half as 
large as the list which confronted the 
class of '63. Perhaps a longer, more 
restrictive set of regulations would have 
made this year's initiation more mean- 

Also may I point out that the "flimsy 
excuse that the football players had been 
Drdered to sleep" on the morning of the 
tug was not used for the first time this 
year. This rule was made last year for 
tne benent of the team, and is fully 
justified if an extra hour's sleep means 
a better gridiron performance. 

In closing I shall simply state that I 
am in full support of Miss Kauffman's 
editorial of October 15. I would like 
to see the organization known as the 
White Hats operated predominantly by 
sophomores when next year rolls around. 

Prelude vs. Congregation 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

From time to time there has been con- 
siderable discussion and complaint from 
the student body concerning the weekly 
chapel services. These complaints gen- 
erally center upon the quality, or lack of 
quality, of these services; more particu- 
larly they dwell on the chapel speakers. 

While those of us who are responsible 
for these services are earnestly seeking 
to improve their quality, let it be re- 
membered by the student body that these 
weekly "meetings" should be precisely 
what they are referred to as being — ser- 

It appears that too often our primary 
objective is one of desiring entertain- 
ment, whereas the primary objective of 
such a service should be worship. This 
is not a "town hall" meeting; we gather 
in God's house. 

Is it too great a sacrifice to pay re- 

This Is Progress 

You are an American. You were born in the United States, brought up in 
a middle-class home in a middle-class town, the child of middle-class parents. And 
you have it made. 

You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, my friend. You pay your 
taxes and your social security and you sit back and let the wheels of progressive 
government rock you in its lap of luxury. You don't say the word "socialism," 
because it has nasty connotations, but you certainly do enjoy its benefits. 

You don't have to worry about anything anymore. Life in America comes 
on the installment plan. Money is never too hard to come by, because there's 
always someone to look out for your interests. You may be perfectly capable of 
advancing yourself, but you are grouped with all the poor unfortunates who can't 
hold their own, and you like it that way. This is progress. 

Perhaps you work for the Pennsylvania Railroad, and someone decides you 
aren't getting enough money, and they call a strike and tell you not to work until 
your pay is raised. That's all right with you, so you stay home for a week or two, 
or even three, and you do nothing, except march in a few picket lines. 

And you cripple an industry that's already fighting for its life in competition 
with the trucking lines and airlines, and cause it to lose millions of dollars. Then 
you go back to work and expect them to pay you a larger salary. 

Someone else got that raise for you, and the greedy ogre of Management (but 
don't call it Free Enterprise) was banished once more, and so you're happy. You 
can also rest assured that the generous soul who called that strike has probably 
padded his pockets quite well with the long green. 

But it's fashionable to be a little dishonest these days. Besides, if you have 
enough ambition to better yourself through honest channels, the government just 
takes a larger slice of it away from you in taxes, so why bother? 

Maybe someday our progressive government will take everyone's money and 
put it in a great big bowl. Then everyone will take an equal share and no one 
will be jealous of anyone else. It doesn't matter who does the most work in our 
society; everyone must share and share alike. This is progress. 

Are you capable of saving for your old age? Why worry about it? The gov- 
ernment will take good care of you. They'll use your own social security money 
and pass it back to you in monthly payments. Line up, kiddies; daddy will give 
you your allowance now. 

There is much to be said for social conscience; a government should shoulder 
the responsibility of helping citizens in need. It should offer some kind of aid to 
college students who can't afford college (such as loans to be paid back out of the 
added salary that further education helps you to earn instead of gifts which come 
out of everyone's pockets). 

But when a government seeks to lead us by the hand from babyhood to the 
grave, on an all-for-one and one-for-all basis, we can expect the laziest civilization 
in history. Persons who are more capable should enjoy the fruits of their labor. 
Should the time ever come that all men share equally in all things, there will no 
longer be cause for the average man to try to better himself. 

Civilizations collapse when everyone decides to "let John do it." If John isn't 
rewarded, he simply will not do it anymore. (PHR) 

To Cut Or Not To Cut 

"Mass Cut!" The call goes out and is followed by complete or partial evacua- 
tion of the classroom. Unfortunately the reaction does not start or stop at this 
point. More serious events surround this exodus. 

If the evacuation is complete the reaction may be tangibly expressed in the 
form of a surprise test or uncomfortable comments from the snubbed professor. 
Every teacher has feelings and deserves the right to express them at least as much as 
does any student who has ever been "stood up" on a date. The time and effort 
which go into the preparation of any lesson, good or bad, are more than that pro- 
ceeding a student's date. Bad feelings, if not permanent damage to pupils' grades, 
are always certain to result. 

If the evacuation is incomplete and a few "prudes" or "goody-goodies" remain 
in the classroom, bad feelings again result. However, in this case the strained 
relations exist not only between teacher and pupils, but also among the pupils 
themselves. The "daring" ones look back in disgust on those who linger behind. 
Rarely does it appear to them that those who remain may not be merely trying to 
win the teacher's favor. Some of these non-conformists may actually be considering 
the fact that college classes do cost money and cutting them does waste it. A few 
of them may even be risking the ire of their classmates because they cling to an 
old-fashioned ideal of respect for people's feelings, even when the person is a 

The escapees from the confines of the classroom frequently convince them- 
selves that they will gain more by cutting than by sitting uninterestedly in class. 
Rarely do their rationalizations ring true. The hour out of class is more frequently 
spent in rather aimless talk at Hot Dog's or the Snack Bar than in purposeful study 
in the dormitory or the library. 

Perhaps the blame for mass cuts should not lie completely on the student. 
Teachers sometimes do fail to exert the effort necessary to make classtime really 
interesting and worthwhile for both themselves and their students. The instinct of 
revolt is stimulated by the awareness that one is a captive and grows when one 
has time to be reminded of it. 

One must also allow for the fact that even the best of teachers at times falls 
victim to the mass cut. Perhaps this is due to the fact that in a college with a no- 
cut policy the prospect of cutting presents an interesting though mild form of rebel- 
lion against authority. Teachers who allow even limited individual cuts have fewer 
problems with mass cuts probably because they reduce the appeal of the cut's 

Many colleges recognize these conditions and adopt the policy of limited 
cuts. Frequently the privilege of a cut is used as incentive toward making better 
grades by granting special license to dean's list students. Perhaps it would be valu- 
able to consider a more liberal policy for Lebanon Valley College. 

Whatever policy is adopted by teacher or administration, it is essential that a 
policy of mature wisdom and thoughtfulness be adopted by the students. The cry 
of "mass cut" may then someday be stricken from the popular collegiate vocabulary.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 10, 1960 


Dr. George G. Struble Writes Of 
People And Cities Of Switzerland 

Men have long dreamed of achieving a perfect society, a type of social organi- 
zation where the ancient problems of poverty, disease, and crime would disappear, 
where men would live together in peace and contentment and no one would be 
dissatisfied with his lot. Blueprints for such a social order have been written by 
Plato, Sir Thomas More (who gave us the name Utopia), by Francis Bacon, and 
by many others. Though the ideal remains as unattainable today as it was in 
Plato's time, I think it is clear that some countries in some periods of history have 
come closer to the dream of Shangri-La than have others. 

Indeed, one of the major causes of 
tension in the world today arises from 
the fact that people of some countries, 
like China and the Congo, have been 
able to share so little in the material 
wealth which modern technology theor- 
etically could make available for every- 
one. Countries like our own America, 
by means of tariff barriers and other re- 
strictions on the flow of goods and ideas, 
have built for themselves a citadel of 
privilege, so that within the protected 
area life comes very close to what an 
earlier age would have looked upon as 

Switzerland Approaches Ideal 

Of the countries of Europe, Switzer- 
land, it seems to me, comes closest to 
the Utopian ideal. Most American tour- 
ists go to Switzerland for the sake of its 
mountain scenery; and it cannot be de- 
nied that its landscapes are magnificent. 
But when Mrs. Struble and I decided to 
establish (residence in Neuchatel, our 
choice was determined primarily by lin- 
guistic considerations. The people of 
Neuchatel claim, with some justification, 
that their French is the best in the world. 

But having enrolled at the University 
of Neuchatel in order to improve our 
French, we soon became interested in 
other aspects of French culture. Many 
of the students at the University of Neu- 
chatel had come from the German- or 
Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland. 
From them we learned about life in oth- 
er parts of Switzerland and gained in- 
sights into the Swiss point of view on 
all sorts of subjects. 

We also made many trips into the sur- 
rounding territory. Some of these trips 
were guided bus tours conducted by the 
University for the benefit of its students; 
some of them were week-end trips by 
train made on our own initiative. We 
visited Lausanne, Geneva, Vevey, Mon- 
treux, Sion, Zurich, Bern, Interlaken, Ba- 
sel, Lucerne, and Lugano. We visited 
watch factories, cigarette factories, wine 
cellars, farms, chateaux, churches, mili- 
tary installations, construction works, 
and private homes. 

We learned that Switzerland has al- 
most as much cultural diversity as it has 
of linguistic diversity. It would be diffi- 
cult to find in America two cities as dif- 
ferent from each other as Zurich, indus- 
trial and manufacturing center of north- 
ern Switzerland, and Geneva, center of 
international diplomacy, international 
Protestantism, and international banking. 
New York is certainly the most inter- 
national (and un-American) of our 
American cities, but New Yorkers are 
provincial when compared to the inter- 
national-mindedness of the people of

Swiss Cities Have "Personalities" 

Nearly every city of Switzerland has 
its distinctive quality. Interlaken is a 
tourist center; St. Moritz is famous for 
its winter sports; Lucerne for its music 
and cultural interests; Lugano for the 
indolent hedonism of its fine foods, 
sunny skies, and the breath-taking beau- 
ties of its vistas. The amazing thing is 
that all these diversities are crowded into 
a territory smaller than our state of West 
Virginia. Within a matter of hours one 
passes from the wheat and dairy regions 
of northern Switzerland, through the 
vineyards of the eastern cantons and the 
fruitlands of Valais, to the semi-tropical 
vegetation of Ticino and the lake coun- 
try south of the Alps. 

Similarly, one finds great differences 
in ethnology. The people of the north 
are hard-working, energetic, aggressive. 
In the region of Neuchatel, where the 
French influences dominate, one finds 
great urbanity, an appreciation of the 
finest in art and literature, and an old- 
fashioned rare today in the

Basketball is just around the corner. 
Every evening for the past month LVC 
court hopefuls have been shooting, run- 
ning, passing and working on defense 
toward the goal of producing a winning 

This season will find a new coach 
handling the reigns of the Valley squad. 
Don Grider, who coached Annville- 
Cleona High to a successful season last 
year, will succeed Dean George R. Mar- 
quette, who manned the Dutchmen for 
eight seasons. 

Coach Grider feels that if he keeps his 
squad intact, he should have a good team. 
Top scoring threat will be last year's 
high man, Hank Van de Water, along 
with Art Forstater, Glen Coates, Steve 
Wisler and Hi Fitzgerald, who should 
give the Dutchmen fair speed, average 
shooting and strong rebounding. 

The new coach also considers the 
team's strongest asset to be its spirit and 
hustle, both offensively and defensively. 
With support from the student body, 
this squad could equal or surpass the 
performance of last year's fine team. 
A standing-room-only crowd would give 
them a real reason for winning. 

Dutchmen Stopped On Albright Two 
With Seconds Remaining; Lose 7-6 

The Flying Dutchmen lost to Albright by a single point, checked on the op- 
ponents' two yard line with only seconds remaining in the game, at the Lions' 
homecoming affair last Saturday. The final score read 7-6. 

The first half saw neither team posing 

France where it had its origin. Geneva 
is highly international and sensitive to 
every nuance of change in world opin- 
ion. In Lugano the culture is essentially 
Italian: gay colors, love of the out-of- 
doors, vivacity and charm, and a devo- 
tion to the culinary arts. 

At the present moment Switzerland is 
riding high on a wave of prosperity. But 
unlike the situation in some other coun- 
tries, it is a prosperity shared by all the 
people. If there is poverty or destitution 
in Switzerland, I saw no evidence of it. 
The factories are operating at full capa- 
city, construction work is going on ev- 
erywhere, restaurants are crowded with 
people (not all of them tourists), and in 
the shops one sees choice products gath- 
ered from all over the world. Because of 
Switzerland's low tariff rates, one can 
often buy foreign commodities there for 
less than one would pay in the country 
where they are manufactured and where 
protective tariffs keep prices artificially 

Famous For Neutrality 

In international affairs Switzerland is 
traditionally neutral. Though very inter- 
nationally-minded, the Swiss in their Al- 
pine fastness hold themselves above the 
passions that sway other men. The so- 
cial structure is basically capitalistic; but 
they keep capitalism well in check and 
by means of price controls and social 
legislation make sure that the big corpor- 
ations do not take undue advantage of 
the consumer. Switzerland has not joined 
NATO, it is not a member of the Euro- 
pean Common Market, and it does not 
even belong to the United Nations. It 
has an extensive trade with Russia, but 
Communism has not been able to gain 
a foothold there as it has in France and 
Italy. When his own government pro- 
vides for his needs as the Swiss govern- 
ment does, the citizen is not tempted to 
run after an alien and dubious ideol- 

Let America and the other countries 
of the free world learn the lesson of 
Switzerland. If Communism is to be con- 
tained, it will not be by atomic bombs, 
expensive outlays for missile programs, 
military alliances and F.B.I, investiga- 
tions of subversive thinking, but by a 
system of social controls so just that it 
will render the shadowy promises of 
Communism unattractive.

Wesleyan Lecturer 
Will Visit Campus 

Mr. Charles E. Martz, lecturer from 
Wesleyan University in Middletown, 
Connecticut, will visit Lebanon Valley, 
Wednesday, November 30. 

Any students, particularly college sen- 
iors, who might be interested in the one 
and two-year programs offered at Wesley- 
an should arrange an appointment to dis- 
cuss these with Mr. Martz. These pro- 
grams lead to the degree of Master of 
Arts in teaching. 

Students who are interested in an in- 
terview with Mr. Martz should report 
to their department heads or directly to 
the administrative assistant. A time 
schedule for conferences will be com- 
piled and the students will be notified of 
the time that they can meet with Mr. 

Pamphlets which explain these pro- 
grams are available in the office of the 
administrative assistant. 

Employees Of Valley 
Give To County Drive 

Mr. Alex J. Fehr, assistant professor 
of political science, has announced that 
a total of $719.50 was contributed by the 
employees of Lebanon Valley College to 
the 1960 Lebanon County Community 
Chest campaign. 

The sum collected this year set a new 
record for the college. The overall aver- 
age contributions for all employees 
amounted to $4.50. For members of the 
faculty and administration the average 
contribution was approximately $7.20. 

Two Chemistry Majors 
Enter Honors Program 

Barbara Wogisch and Kenneth Light 
will participate in the chemistry depart- 
ment honors program. Both are juniors 
and chemistry majors. 

Juniors and seniors may participate in 
the departmental honors program if they 
have demonstrated a high scholastic pro- 
ficiency in both theoretical and experi- 
mental chemistry. 

To be recommended for departmental 
honors, a student is required: (1) to sub- 
mit a thesis based on an extensive labora- 
tory investigation of an original problem; 
(2) to defend the thesis before an ap- 
propriate examining committee. Bar- 
bara's intended project is oxidation of 
alpha - pinene and Ken's is the reduction 
study of aryl - alkyl ketones.

How To Understand Women 

A Woman is a foreign land 
Of which, though there he settle young 
A man will ne'er quite understand 
The customs, politics and tongue. 

In the interest of aiding the poor, pur- 
sued males of LVC, La Vie offers the 
following timely tips on fathoming the 
female psyche. Since many a male goose 
is cooked on Gander Weekend, these sug- 
gestions may also be used in reverse, to 
rid oneself of overzealous members of 
the fair sex. 

1. Act devoted. Brush imaginary dust 
from her shoulder, hold hands under the 
dinner table, touch your lips to the glass 
her lips have touched — and don't worry 
if the gesture seems old hat or corny. 
These suggestions, for instance, come 
from a 2,000 year old treatise on "The 
Art of Love." Did they work? So well 
that Ovid, the author, was obliged to 
write a sequel telling men how to avoid 
entangling alliances! 

2. Act jealous. A man who's unrea- 
sonable — within reasonable limits, of 
course — is one of the most effective ego- 
builders a woman can have. Therefore, 
grumble a bit when she smiles fetchingly 
at another man. If you're still single and 
not yet at the going-steady stage, ask if 
she's free for a date in a tone that im- 
plies you think you're competing with 
at least two other guys. Never let her 
suspect that you know you're her only 
beau, even if you know it for a fact! 

3. Know what to say. Suppose she's 
made an obvious effort to look glamor- 
ous and you can't remember whether 
you've seen the dress before. Or you'd 
like to compliment her on her flair for 
fashion but you wouldn't know the dif- 
ference between an Empire line and a 
chain gang. Get out of it graciously — 
and effectively — by saying simply, "How 
lovely you look!" 

Most women resent the condescending 
"little woman" approach so, if you com- 
pliment her on her knowledge of batting 
averages or the international situation, 
don't sound as if it's a miracle that she 
knows these things. Virtually every wo- 
man likes to be proud of her man's intel- 
lect, so profit from the example of a gent 
who was famous for his ability to con- 
verse on any topic. His name: Giovanni 
Giacomo Casanova. 

4. Lean to read her signals. Many men 
suspect — and many women cheerfully ad- 
mit — that women have a language of 
their own, expressed in tonal variations 
and pauses between words as well as in 
the words themselves. You'll never 
speak it, but for optimum success with 
bilingual ladies, it behooves you to un- 
derstand a little of it. 

Watch out for the significent pause. 
Have you asked her if your pooch can 
come along on your romantic evening 
stroll, and has she hesitated just a few 

seconds before saying yes? Drop the 
subject; if Rover comes along, you'll be 
in the doghouse. 

The same goes for a cautious, over- 
polite tone; if she'd really love to go to 
your class reunion, she'd have said so 
heartily. Be alert, too, for the hint so 
indirect as to be the opposite of what it 
sounds like. "Don't bother to get any- 
thing for my birthday" really means 
"don't forget, now" — and don't you for- 
get it. 

5. Watch your grooming. Women 
have one trait in common with the less 
beautiful sex; they feel flattered when 
a date or mate takes special pains to be 
attractive. Beau Brummel broke hearts 
in 19th century England simply because 
he had a good tailor, and Lord Byron's 
collars, cleverly arranged to bare his 
muscular throat, set all of female Eu- 
rope a-throb. Lacking new safety razors 
and Old Spice, 16th century swains 
powdered and perfumed their beards. 

6. Give the right type of gift. Gifts, 
like courtesies, should be small and fre- 
quent, rather than rare and extravagant, 
if you're going to give her the sense of 
appreciation she craves. Take a tip from 
Napoleon, who courted his second bride 
by arranging to have flowers sent to 
her every day — more then a century be- 
fore the days of flowers by wire! 

7. Accept her faults. Presumably your 
objective is to join them, not beat them, 
so why start needless arguments? Is she 
always late? Be unpunctual with her! 
Recognize that certain beliefs are fixedly 
rooted in the feminine mind, and don't 
attempt to debunk such articles of faith 
as the following: every woman could be 
pretty if she'd just spend as much time 
on herself as that model in the magazine, 
all bachelors are secretly unhappy with 
their lot and — perhaps the most cherish- 
ed belief of all — no man really under- 
stands women. 

Students To Discuss 
Education In USSR 

Sheila Taynton will lead a discussion on 
"Education in Russia" at the Student 
Pennsylvania State Education Associa- 
tion's monthly meeting this evening at 
7:00 p.m. 

Sheila will base her comments on her 
recent trip to the USSR. The discussion 
will take place in Philo Hall of the Ad- 
ministration Building. All PSEA mem- 
bers and any other interested persons are 
invited to attend. 

The membership campaign of the Gos- 
sard Chapter of student PSEA has offi-

VariationOn ATheme 

(A collegiate condensation of the play by 
Eugene Ionesco) 

How do you like not being a rhinoc- 
eros? Or haven't you ever thought about 

There are certain things a college stu- 
dent would do well to ponder, and not 
being a rhinoceros is one of these. With 
a word of thanks to Eugene Ionesco, the 
French playwright whose modernistic dra- 
ma Rhinoceros is appearing in New York 
this season, I should like to offer some 
meditation on this theme. 

You are not a rhinoceros — and you're 
glad! You walk across the campus, nod 
and smile at your classmates, and say 
to yourself, "Boy, am I glad I'm not a 

You wake up one morning and check 
to see whether your roommate, too, has 
heard the alarm clock. As usual, he has 
not. You call him. You hear him getting 
out of bed while you are dressing. He 
sounds clumsier than he ordinarily is. 
You turn to see what is wrong. And 
you shriek. 

His skin is tough and green. There is a 
horn protruding from his head. His pa- 
jamas lie torn to ribbons on the bed. 
He is much bigger than he was last 
night. The truth hits you. Your room- 
mate has become a rhinoceros. 

You rush into the hall and scream to 
your friends. But they do not believe 
you. They hear the thud of a huge lum- 
bering figure crashing down the steps 
and out of the" dorm. But this is a coin- 
cidence. Of course it is. 

Your friends pat your shoulder. "You 
need something in your stomach. Let's 
go to the dining hall." 

There is talk in the dining hall. The 
early risers spotted a rhinoceros charg- 
ing down the streets of Annville. 

A week passes. You are "sleeping in." 
Your morning classes have been can- 
celled. Most of the professors are rhi- 
noceroses now and there is no longer a 
common ground for communication. 

A week passes. You are talking with 
one of your friends. This rhinoceros bit 
is really bad news. Do you see those 
things running around everywhere? It's 

"It sure is," your friend says. "It's get- 
ting to the point where you aren't 
sure — " But his voice has turned to a 
frenzied trumpeting and you watch as he 
crushes the bushes in his path and dis- 
appears around the corner of the library. 

A week passes. You are lonely, cold, 
and hungry. You are living in the rubble 
that was once your dormitory. The din- 
ing hall, too, has been demolished by the 
clomping, careening beasts that were 
once your classmates. You have no class- 
es. You have no discussions, no extra- 
curricular activities. You are the only 
human being on campus. You are the 
only human being on earth. 

How does it feel to be a non-rhino- 

Do you favor the White Hats? Do you 
want a big name band for the Junior 
Prom? Do you go along with mass cuts? 

Can you give me a quote on your po- 
sition? You have no one to consult now. 
There is nothing to conform to for these 
answers and the other answers you used 
to give. In fact, there are none of these 
questions any more. 

There are no White Hats, for there 
are no freshmen — and no group to ini- 
tiate them if there were freshmen. There 
is not going to be a Junior Prom, be- 
cause rhinoceroses do not like to dance. 
They do not attend classes either; so 
there is no cut problem. 

You fumble in the debris until you 
find what you have been seeking — the 
one piece of mirror that was not shat- 
tered in the stampedes. You crouch on 
the ground and contemplate the face you 
see. You hear their trumpetings in the 

" 'Ah, if only I had a tough hide and 
that magnificent dark green color, a de- 
cent hairless nudity like theirs . . . 
Alas, I would never become a rhinoc- 
eros.' " 

So you think you would never want to 
be a rhinoceros? So you think you are 
not a rhinoceros? Have you checked a 
mirror lately? (MIX) 

Hdirlessness And Household Chores 
Spell Manliness In Certain Lands 

Broad shoulders and a well-thatched chest may be the picture that flashes 
across one's mind when thinking of the ideal man. But these qualities count for 
naught in many parts of the world, where quite a different vision of male perfec- 
tion makes women sigh and men groan with envy. "Masculinity" has almost as 
many definitions as there are languages, and at last count there were 1,000 living 
languages being bandied about the globe. 

That favorite Hollywood film shot of 
the hirsute hero baring his manly chest 
would cause no stir, for example, among 
the women of Bali. There the admired 
male is short, wiry and so hairless that 
he can remove his few chin whiskers with 
a tweezer. The same type spells mas- 
culinity throughout much of the Orient. 
Even the fierce redskin warrior, a man's 
man if there ever was one, could find no 
firewater powerful enough to "put hair 
on his chest." 

Can a he-man be lacking not only in 
muscle development but in aggressiveness 
and the competitive instinct? Is it manly 
to be timid, gentle, submissive, to cod- 
dle your children to the point of feeding 
them mouthful by mouthful? 

The Arapesh of New Guinea say yes: 
this is their definition of the perfect man 
and the good citizen. Curiously enough, 
it is also their ideal of womanhood. A 
man and his mate have almost identical 
personalities and duties in this small re- 
mote tribe. 

Basic to Western notions of masculinity 
is the image of the husband as "a good 
provider," but among many peoples it is 
the wife who brings home the bacon. 
Gypsy women tell fortunes and sell 
trinkets while their men sit in coffee- 
houses. Among the fierce Mundugumor, 
neighbors of the Arapesh, women farm 
the land while their he-men plot raids on 
nearby settlements. 

In still another New Guinea tribe, the 
Tchambuli, men wear elaborate orna- 
ments, carve the ritual masks and dress 
the ceremonial dolls. When they are not 
busy with artistic matters, they're doing 
the family shopping. The women, mean- 
while, are managing all the practical af- 
fairs of the tribe. 

I at muls Prefer Leap Year Approach 

But surely the man is everywhere the 
aggressor in courtship? Not so. Though 
the African Zulus are very strict on this 
point, insisting on the man's privilege of 
pursuit (and no time off for Gander 
Weekend), the South Sea Iatmuls take 
a different approach. The men know 
that if they just sit back and wait, some 
girl will send a love token with a message 
expressing the Iatmul equivalent of "Are 
you a man or a mouse?" 

Other cherished cliches of masculinity 
are refuted even closer to home. The 
French general's kiss on the war hero's 
cheek is only the best-known example 
of the fact that in Latin countries it's 
considered routine for men to greet each 
other affectionately. It's also perfectly 
natural for a man to show strong emo- 
tion, even to shed tears. And Latin males 
from Mark Antony to Napoleon to many 
present day conquerors have perfumed 
themselves without being thought sissified 
the local belles. 

Almost everywhere in the world, 
though, a man will put up a fight to 
protect his prerogatives from female en- 
croachment. In many primitive tribes, 
men have secret societies to which no 
woman may ever be admitted; the eaves- 
Jropping female risks death if caught. 
Though less extreme in their approach, 
American men have always insisted on a 
few sacred masculine preserves. In 
Grandpa's day it was the barbershop and 
(quite often) the corner saloon. Now 
that women are borrowing male fashions, 
entering professions once reserved for 
men, and are getting hubby to help with 
the housework, the struggle is tougher, 
but it's still going on. 

Psychologists suggest that many men 
enjoy cigars just because women hate 
their rank aroma. Aside from its low 
price, one of the big factors in beer's 
popularity is its tradition of being a man's 
drink. Hopping on the band-wagon, 
cigarette manufacturers are advertising 
masculine smokes. But they're cautious: 
one leading brand had billed itself as "a 
cigarette for men that women like." 

OSU Finds Students 
Well- Acquainted With 
"Origin of Species' 1 

Ohio State University's Lantern polled 
students on their knowledge of the class- 
ics. Of the books from a list compiled 
from suggestions of professors in five 
fields, it was found that the one book 
tvith which almost all were familiar was 
Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species. 

Lantern writer Bram Dijkstra cited 
this as " a striking example of twen- 
tieth century emphasis on scientific edu- 
cation." Few had read French and Span- 
ish masterpieces, indicating, Dijkstra felt, 
that "although isolationism may have 
left the United States political scene, it 
still reigns unshaken in the field of edu- 

One conclusion indicated by the poll 
s that almost all knowledge the average 
student has about the classic stems from 
being confronted with them in the class- 
room — more specifically, in college. 
Many OSU students requested copies of 
the poll questionnaire because it made a 
good reading list. (ACP)

by conversation; and louder playing 
seems to stimulate louder conversation. 
The purpose of the prelude is to set a 
mood for the worship that is to follow. 
It is not merely entertainment. . . . 

Another point of the service which 
could be far more meaningful is that 
immediately following the benediction. 
A few moments of quiet, prayerful med- 
itation while the choir recesses would 
be well spent and would be a fitting 
close to a service of worship. 

The chapel service, if it is not to be a 
worshipful, meaningful experience, does 
not necessarily center only upon the 
speaker as strongly as is often thought. 
It does center heavily upon a commu- 
nity of respectful, worshipping, meditat- 
ing students, eagerly and sincerely seek- 
ing spiritual guidance and growth for 
their lives. 


Probably the most widely accepted 
symbol of masculinity is the pair of 
pants. Since the 16th century, when 
men began to adopt trousers, "wearing 
the pants around the house" has clearly 
been Father's prerogative. (Before that 
time, when male fashions made a great 
display of male legs, folks probably spoke 
of "wearing the tights around the 

Comfortably and stylishly attired in 
trousers that are unmistakably male in 
name as well as in tailoring, the Ameri- 
can man can hardly be blamed for his 
smug cracks to the effect that women 
shouldn't wear slacks unless "the end 
justifies the jeans." 

Arabs believe "it is written" that men 
are the superior sex. In parts of old 
Japan, a male infant could throw tan- 
trums all day without fear of being clob- 
bered by the females of the household. 
Despite his tiny size he was feared and 
respected simply because he was a male 

But it's among the Ashanti of Africa 
that men are really men (though wo- 
men are not necessarily glad of it.) 
Among the 12 offenses that call for the 
death penalty in Ashanti law (committing 
murder and cursing the chief are both 
first-degree felonies) is the unspeakable 
crime committed by any woman who 
calls a man a fool!

Record Puzzle Trips Up Entrants; 
Offer Soviet Examination Question 

La Vie received four correct solutions to last week's puzzler, the Tug-of-War. 
These were submitted by Joseph Clark, Bruce Docherty, James Gruber and Mike 
Lenker. Only Clark and Lenker, however, figured out that the record needle 
travels only three and one-quarter inches, from the rim of the record to the edge 
of the center label. 

The Tug solution is as follows, from strongest to weakest: Frank, Bob, Fred 
and Jim. The original problem can be reduced to the following two equalities and 
one inequality, using the boys' initials, with F for Frank and Fr for Fred. 
B is stronger than Fr plus /. 

F plus Fr are stronger than J plus B. 

B plus Fr equals F plus J. 

This last statement, the equality, can 
be solved for Fr, which means that Fred's 
strength equals that of Jim's plus Frank's 
minus Bob's. By substituting this for 
Fred in the second equation above, Frank 
is proved stronger than Bob, who is 
stronger than the other two. 

In the equality, since we know that 
Bob is weaker than Frank, then Fred 
must be stronger than Jim. 

Russian Entrance Exam 

The following question appears on an 
entrance exam for nontechnical Soviet 
college students. There is no trick to it; 
it simply tests basic knowledge of science. 

There are two steel bars clinging side 
by side, apparently identical. One is sim- 
ply soft steel, but the other is a powerful 
bar magnet. The problem is to deter- 
mine which is which, using no other 
equipment or material. They may be 
pulled apart but can be placed in another 
position only once before an answer is 
given. What is the procedure? 

Entries should be placed in the La Vie 
mailbox in the Student Personnel Office 
before November 22.

New Physics Group 
Is Memter Of AIP 

The Physics Club organized recently 
on the Lebanon Valley campus is a stu- 
dent section of the American Institute of 
Physics. The purpose of the club is to 
encourage the study of physics and to 
assist student physicists. 

Joseph Fox was elected president and 
Amos Hollinger vice president. John 
Bowman will serve as secretary-treasurer, 
while Mr. J. Robert O'Donnell will act 
as faculty adviser. 

The founding of this student section 
of the AIP was observed with a 
banquet held at the Officers' Club 
of the Indiantown Gap Military Reser- 
vation Friday, November 4, at 6:30 p.m. 
The featured speaker of the evening 
was Dr. Walter Bunderman, a science 
teacher at John Harris High School, 

Membership in the club is open to all 
physics majors and to any college stu- 
dents who have indicated an interest in 
the field of physics by registering for 
courses in the physics department.

71 percent of the group voted, giving 
the Nixon-Lodge ticket a three to one vic-

Ne wall Writes Article 
For London Journal 

The October issue of Opera, a London 
cultural journal, contains Mr. Robert 
Newall's contribution, "A Tribute to 
Lawrence Tibbett." 

Newall, who joined the faculty this 
fall, is an assistant professor in the de- 
partment of English, and a writer for a 
number of publications. 

He refers to the late singer as "one of 
the finest American baritones . . . the 
colleague and predecessor of Leonard 
Warren ... for a score of years the reign- 
ing baritone at the Metropolitan." 

He mentions Tibbett's catapult to fame 
as Ford in "Falstaff ," but points out that 
the magnificent talent displayed there 
was sometimes prostituted when Law- 
rence agreed to perform in lesser shows, 
for example, the "Hit Parade," singing 
music unworthy of his ability. 

Nevertheless, Tibbett is highly praised 
by Newall for his enormous contribution 
to great music; among the concluding 
statements of the "Tribute" is a tone of 
strong admiration for "a man who has 
given us such a galaxy of indelible op- 
eratic portraits and who has given so un- 
stintingly of that incomparable voice."

He's uncouth, he's illiterate, he's completely irre- 
sponsible. His tabic manners are frightful. His talk 
is pure gibberish. And he thinks with the mind of 
a one-year-old. 

Let's face it, he's a mess. 

Yet in thirty-five short years this extremely un- 
promising individual could become the President 
of the United States. 

Meanwhile, somebody's going to have to 
shape him up. 

A lot of people will share this monumental task. His 
parents. His playmates. His teachers. All of them 
must help him realize, among other things, that if 
he hopes to continue his education, only hard work 
and good marks will qualify him for college train- 
ing. Probably the most awesome responsibility of 
all will fall to the college he chooses at the age of 
eighteen. For it is in college that he must mature 
from a carefree youth to a responsible, thinking 

man. Let's pray that he is admitted to one of the 
finest universities in the land. 

What are his chances? 

Unfortunately, not too good. Many of our colleges 
are overcrowded today. In ten years applications 
are expected to double. By 1970, many potential 
presidents may be turned away at the gates. Others 
may suffer from mediocre instruction. For in the 
face of this impending crisis, low salaries are forc- 
ing gifted teachers to leave the campus for better 
paying jobs elsewhere. 

We must reverse this disastrous trend. Won't you 
do your part? Support the college of your choice 
now! Help it to expand its facilities and pay teach- 
ers the salaries they deserve. Not just our choice 
of President, but our whole future as a nation may 
depend on it.

crisis means to you. Write for a free booklet to HIGHER

Occasionally a professor unwittingly creates a situation in one of his courses 
which not only results in an inaccurate picture of the students' progress, but also 
causes friction among the students themselves. This occurs when a professor gives 
the same exam or exams two years in a row. 

Consider the following hypothetical situation. A test is announced in a senior 
class course, and one or two students know where they may obtain copies of 
last year's exam. On the supposition that the prof may pass out a carbon copy 
of last year's test (and such suppositions are rarely fabricated without foundation), 
they and a select few of their friends study the test and memorize the answers 

The day of the test arrives, and the questions are quite difficult, even for those 
students who have studied their texts and lecture notes. But a certain eight or 
ten students turn in near-perfect papers. When the grades are curved, these stu- 
dents rank high, and the rest of the class suffers by comparison. 

Ill feeling results among the class members themselves when they discover 
that certain of their fellows hoarded copies of the previous test. Yet few would 
share the information contained in such an exam with those against whom they will 
be competing. 

It is often the case that students who cheat in this manner (and dishonesty is 
very definitely involved) are not the ones who know the material anyway. But 
when a well-studied individual misses even one or two questions, his grade is over- 
shadowed (an J out-curved) by the perfection of his rival's work. 

It is hard to believe that a professor does not become suspicious when a stu- 
dent who never volunteers in class and can never answer a question orally turns 
in a near-perfect examination. If all students were to have access to previous 
tests, they would all have an equal opportunity to succeed. But when a prof 
gives the same test twice in a row, students who study are cheated out of their 
rightful credit by those who hoard ill-gotten answers for themselves. 

It may be a little more work for a prof to compile a new set of tests each year. 
Nevertheless, unless they remove all copies of their tests from circulation each year, 
an unfortunately inaccurate appraisal of each individual's accomplishments will 
result. (PHR) 

"Collage" Requests 
Student Response 

The magazine Collage has launched its 
first international survey of college stu- 
dents. Campuses from Hawaii to Canada 
are now being polled through mailed 
questionnaires with the help of Col- 
lage student correspondents at more than 
70 schools. 

These survey forms contain questions 
concerning preferences in music, art, lit- 
erature, fashions, cosmetics and other 
consumer commodities. The results of 
this study will be made available to in- 
terested student, government and busi- 
ness organizations early in 1961. 

Since there are no student correspond- 
ents on this campus as yet, copies of this 
questionnaire may be obtained from 
the editors of this paper or directly from 
Collage, 1822 North Orleans Street, Chi- 
cago 14, Illinois. Deadline for the re- 
ceipt of these forms is December 31. 

Students who fill out and return these 
survey sheets will receive free of charge 
an LP recording of one of the maga- 
zine's new college radio programs, or a 
sample copy of Collage if they are un- 
familiar with it, or both if supplies last. 

The first two issues of Collage are 
presently available in the Gossard Mem- 
orial Library. 

Dean Breidenstine

Music Department To Sponsor 
Annual Formal Dinner Dance 

Ex-Governor Duff 
establishes Award 

Lebanon Valley College has establish- 
ed the Governor James H. Duff Award 
with an unrestricted gift from the former 
Governor and Senator of Pennsylvania. 

The award, consisting of a certificate 
and a monetary prize derived from in- 
vested funds, will be granted annually to 
a college senior who by participation in 
campus government or by debate demon- 
strates an interest in government service. 

President Miller said that this is the 
first gift to be granted by Governor Duff 
to a college within the state and that it 
was given in a strictly non-partisan man- 
ner. "Governor Duff," Dr. Miller said, 
'wishes this award to promote interest 
in state government among the students." 

"Governor Duff's career was influenced 
while he was a student at Princeton Uni- 
versity through the winning of a debat- 
ing medal. When he won that medal, he 
was still trying to decide whether to 
study medicine or to choose some other 
career. However, upon winning the de- 
bate (on the subject of government) and 
the medal, he was so impressed with the 
many intriguing facets of government 
that he decided to make law his career." 

Governor Duff was awarded an hon- 
orary Doctor of Laws degree from Leba- 
non Valley in 1950. Since his retirement 
from public life, he has been practicing 
law in Washington and in western Penn- 

Governor Duff was represented at the 
presentation of the gift in Dr. Miller's 
office by three alumni of the college. 
They were Mrs. Sarah Leffler, home and 
school visitor from the Lebanon City 
School District; Mr. Robert A. Nichols, 
secretary of the Lebanon City School 
Board and past president of the Lebanon 
Valley Alumni Association; and Mr. Will- 
iam E. Gollam of the Lebanon Daily 
News editorial staff. 

Chem Representatives 
Attend District Meeting 

Five students and four faculty mem- 
bers of the chemistry department attend-

Dramatic Fraternity 
Discusses Activities 

The Rho Eta Cast of Alpha Psi Ome- 
ga, national honorary dramatic frater- 
nity, discussed the theatrical activities of 
LVC at the semi-annual meeting on No- 
vember 15. 

The members, after voting in favor of 
minor changes in the cast constitution, 
investigated various suggestions for the 
three-act play or musical which Wig and 
Buckle plans to put before the footlights 
next spring. The group is now choosing 
a flower to be adopted as the symbol of 
the LVC cast. 

The students wish to extend their best wishes to Mrs. Tredick during her recov- 
ery. It is hoped that she can return to her position as head nurse very soon. 

The Lebanon Valley music department will hold its annual formal dinner and 
dance at the Palmyra Legion Friday, December 9. from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. 
Music for the affair will be provided by Donald Trostle and his orchestra. 

This annual event, one of the few for- 
mal dances to be sponsored by an LVC 
organization, was planned by a commit- 
tee headed by Joan Mumper, a senior in 
the music department. To help offset the 
costs involved, a donation of $5.00 is 
requested of each couple. 

Following the dinner, the orchestra of 
Don Trostle, a graduate of Lebanon 
Valley, will provide entertainment and 
music for dancing. This dinner dance is 
open to all music education majors and 
minors and their guests. 

Chorus To Present 

The College chorus will present a 
community Christmas program, Decem- 
ber 13, in Engle Hall. 

The chorus will be under the direction 
of Mr. Pierce Getz. David Poff, a senior 
in the department of music, will accom- 
pany the group. 

Christmas Oratorio by Carmille Saint 
Saens, Our Father by Alexander Gretch- 
aninoff, and O Come, Let Us Worship 
and Glory Be To God, by Sergei Rach- 
maninoff, are among the numbers to be 
sung by the chorus. 

The department of music and the 
local ministerium are sponso ing this ac- 

Kilmoyer Explains Skill 
Of Coding By Matrices 

Members of the mathematics club 
heard Robert Kilmoyer, a senior math 
major, explain a simplified but typical 
version of the use of matrices in the 
manufacture of a "secret veil" for mes- 

His talk, given at the c'.ub's latest 
meeting, was based on a method first 
founded by the famous cryptographer, 
Hill, who made vital use of it in the 
service of our country. 

Much of the course content of Math 
10 was shown to be of practical value in 
coding and decoding. Kilmoyer further 
referred to a recent paper in the "Mathe- 
matics Teacher" which he had read in 
conjunction with his work in the honors 
program. He said that the method of 
using matrices to code messages, though 
simple in application, has proven to be 
one of the toughest coding systems to 
crack. m 

LVC Music Students To 
Host State Convention 

The annual convention of the Penn- 
sylvania Music Educators' Association in 
Harrisburg began today and will contin- 
ue Friday and Saturday. 

Fifty-six of Lebanon Valley College's 
juniors and seniors will represent the 
school at Friday's events. 

A student chapter will be held at noon 
Friday. The luncheon is sponsored by 
the Music Educator's National Confer- 
ence, with chapter No. 146, the Lebanon 
Valley chapter, as host. H. William Nix- 
on will act as chairman and toastmas- 
ter of the event. The program will con- 
sist of a duet by Sandra Stetler and 
Kenneth Hayes, and a panel discussion 
entitled the "Status of Music Educa- 

One of the main highlights of the 
day's program is the performance of the 
Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir 
and Orchestra, under the direction of 
Dr. James Thurmond. The concert will 
be held in the Forum of the education 
building at 8 p.m. 

Annual Science Program 
Will Bring 175 To LVC 

The sixth annual Science for a Day 
Program sponsored by the science divi- 
sion of Lebanon Valley College will be 
held at the college Saturday, December 
10. Mr. O. P. Bollinger of the biology 
department will serve as co-ordinator of 
the affair. 

Approximately 175 high school sci- 
ence teachers and students are expected 
to participate in the program. Prelimin- 
ary remarks will be given by Dr. Carl Y. 
Ehrhart, dean of the college, and Dr. 
Jacob Rhodes, chairman of the depart- 
ment of physics, following which the 
visiting students will take part in science 
projects supervised by instructors from 
the college's science division and college 
students. The projects have been pro- 
grammed by scientific discipline accord- 
ing to the special interests of the partici- 

High school students have been asked 
10 pre-register through their teachers for 
one of the projects. There will be ten 
entries in biology, twelve in chemistry, 
;en in mathematics and fourteen in phy- 
sics from which to choose. 

While the visiting students are occu- 
pied with the projects, their instructors 
vill gather for a mutual exchange of 
ideas and suggested improvements for 
leaching the sciences in high schools. 

The afternoon will be devoted to a 
program involving both the participants 
in Science for a Day and the high school 
students who will be on campus for the 
mnual scholarship examinations. 

As in previous years, Science for a Day 
is made possible through a grant from the 
E. I. duPont de Nemours Company. The 
purpose of this program is to encourage 
qualified and interested young people to 
prepare themselves for professional ser- 
vice in one of the many science areas.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 1, 1960 

This Is Progr ess — II 

Bedtime Story 

Once upon a time many men gathered together and decided to form a coun- 
try where everyone would have equal opportunity. These men had many different 
skills, and each one gave of his services so that the others might benefit. They 
shared their responsibilities and worked side by side and their country grew. 

As their new nation expanded, some men became merchants, some farmers, 
some blacksmiths. And later, as more and more people populated the land, some 
were workers and some were supervisors of workers. But while there was "man- 
agement" and "labor," all still maintained the ideals of their forefathers. 

But soon someone in management deeded that they could make more money 
by making the workers work harder for the same pay. And someone in labor 
decided that shorter hours and more pay would be desirable. So management 
saved money by failing to provide proper working conditions and by requiring 
greater toil; and labor banded toge into pressure groups, to force management 
to give in to their needs and demands. 

And there were those in thai country who saw the injustices and dishonesty 
which lurked in the factories of their land. And they talked and they wrote and 
they made the facts known to their fellows. Then it was that courageous men in 
the government of that nation decided to end the strife and friction between the 
two opposing sides. 

And they passed laws; and they said, "you shall provide proper working con- 
ditions for your laborers; you shall have them work no longer than a certain num- 
ber of hours per week; your workers shall in return give of their labor in prescribed 
manners, and shall not cease their labor without due grievance. Violation of these 
rules will result in punishment." 

And the men of the land obeyed the laws, most of the time. But management 
did not provide for its workers because it felt a sense of responsibility; nor did the 
workers do their jobs for the sake of those who benefitted from them. They 
simply did as they were told, as long as government watched over them. 

For government had placed a fence around them, Lke animals, and threatened 
them with punishment if they dared try to climb out. And the people of that 
country no longer felt responsibility for each other's welfare. They followed the 
rules because they had to, not because they had an innate sen->e of goodness and 

Once upon a time men formed a country in which all men worked together for 
the good of them all, as individuals and as interdependent citizens of one nation. 
And these men grew up into children, caring only for their personal welfare, and 
poppa government watches out for them all, and keeps them away from each 
other's throats. 

America needs a central government with the power to control its people like 
puppets on a string. America needs a father to tell its people just what to do. 
All this is necessary, because Americans have forgotten how to take care of them- 
selves. They can't be bothered learning a sense of responsibility. They need some- 
one to take care of them. (PHR) 

As Lambs Unto Slaughter .... 

"An act committed under compulsion ... is neither praiseworthy nor repre- 
hensible. To be one or the other it must be voluntary." 

The above Aristotelian thought presupposes that man, as a thinking being, 
possesses the power of making decisions for himself for which he is to some 
extent responsible. We could expect such a view from Aristotle, champion of the 
individual and proponent of a state which exists as the servant of individuals. Mod- 
ern political thinkers, however, see things differently. 

It is now fashionable to believe that man exists as a cog in the great wheel 
of State. We have lost faith in ourselves and with the aid of some psychological 
and political yoga, we are seeking absorption in a new American Nirvana. Ameri- 
cans have been submitting to a series of governmental changes which relieve them 
more and more of direct responsibility in government and in their personal lives. 
Those who seek power are willing to think for the masses, and win votes by telling 
their audiences so. Who has convinced the people that their elected representa- 
tives are all-wise benefactors? Who has persuaded the majority of their ineptitude? 

The theory that government should plan for the economy, the distribution of 
wealth, health, education and welfare takes for granted that government will be 
pure — a dangerous assumption. Our national attitude is becoming such that we 
are letting ourselves wide open for propaganda of power-seekers who win elections 
by noble promises and then work to mold men to fit the mold of the State. 

Under a Welfare State, life is easier for people; charity is compulsory. The 
swaddling clothes of security make adventure unnecessary. Drudgery may be gone, 
but so is challenge and healthy strife. Eventually we will be steeped in equality to 
the point of absorption — truly humane, truly benevolent, truly mediocre. The law 
compels us — we are amoral creatures at its mercy. 

A feeling of impotence in the face of national and world problems is already 
afield, and this helplessness is fostered by more than the lamented electoral college, 
more than domineering labor leadership, more than increased government plan- 
ning. People feel that they have an uncertain and insecure place in a complex 

The function of a government should be protection, as in the control of fraud, 
exploitation, or unscrupulousness on the part of individuals or nations. It has no 
right to order in any other way the personal lives of its citizenry, and the people 
should not vote it this right. For lack of self-trust and hunger for security, however, 
they do it. One is further led to believe they do it out of pure laziness. 

The drive for security is bound to be the downfall of Americans, individually 
and as a nation. The frontier offered many risks — a man played many roles, 
and nonchalantly won and lost fortunes. He believed that there were always new 
opportunities: "If at first you don't succeed, try again," or "Go West, young 
man!" The modern paraphrase would be, "If at first you don't succeed, get a 
government handout." Unfortunately the spirit of adventure seems to have died 
with the covered wagon. 

We are asking to be told how much money we should have, what crops we 
should grow, how our funds are to be spent. We are asking to be obliged to ac- 
cept the inevitable directives accompanying federal "aid" to schools (also used as 
bribes for integration and other government purposes). 

We are gradually building a society like the one from which our forefathers 
escaped to the New World. We are asking to be told just how we should pursue 
happiness. (JMK)

Questions Faculty Humor 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

Why is it that many professors, when 
trying to introduce humor into their lec- 
tures, often resort to the use of off-color 

Is it because the students are incap- 
able of understanding or enjoying a 
• clean" joke? Or could this be the pro- 
fessors' method of coming to the stu- 
dents as equals? 

This unfortunate situation does not 
reflect favorably upon people who are 
supposed to be very intelligent and in 
a position to teach and influence others. 


Takes Pride In LVC 
To the Editors of La Vie: 

I wish to take this opportunity to ex- 
press in print my pride in one of our fine 
social organizations. They are doing a 
wonderful job of teaching their pledges 
the ways of college life. 

What better way is there to make men 
out of the fledglings than to expose 
them to the virile, masculine, collegiate 
atmosphere of a beer party? 

Some people really know how to live. 
They sit around feasting on the kiss of 
the hops while their eyes wander lewdly 
over a flickering screen before them. 
Some people call such movies depravity, 
but this is life, this is college, this is 

It's also somewhat disgusting that col- 
lege men have to get their kicks this 


Stand Up and Be Counted 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

On Tuesday I attended chapel; I do 
not mind going to chapel even though it 
is forced upon us. I believe that even 
adults need a certain amount of restric- 
tions, rules and regulations placed upon 
them. 1 do not believe, however, that 
adults need to be told where to sit in a 
church. I go to church regularly and I 
have never once wandered through the 
building seeking a place to sit. I, like 
most normal people, quietly sit down 
where I see an available spot. 

I ai ree with Mr. Getz that we need to 
have more reverence in our approach to 
our chapol services. This is something 
.Mich student must consider a personal 
responsibility as an adult. If one does 
not want to participate actively in a serv- 
ice of worship, the least he can do is be 
quiet so the rest of us may benefit from 
the service. However, I do not feel we 
need to be treated like a bunch of Mickey 
Mouse puppets. 

Our country's democracy is becoming 
socialistic; this is obvious. But here at 
our college I want to act like an adult 
and be treated like one. Maybe if we 
had more assurance that we are consid- 
ers! adults, we would take it more seri- 

We have dining hall numbers, linen 
numbers, fire drill numbers: maybe if 
we're lucky we can avoid having a num- 
ber for chapel. 



Toward Equal Opportunity 

The social societies at LVC have long been an effective means of bringing to- 
gether students from all departments in a social situation. A member of one of these 
groups meets a variety of people of numerous interests, talents and abilities, and 
there is every reason to believe that this kind of association has brought to the 
fore previously undiscovered social competency in many personalities. 

The value of participation in the meetings, projects, parties and dances of the 
societies is evident whenever a student (who obviously would never have been con- 
sidered for a selective sorority or fraternity) makes good. Heretofore these things 
have been recognized and respected by LVC's social clubs. First impressions were 
recognized for the shallow generalizations that they are. The unwieldiness of the 
resulting large societies was considered secondary to the importance of serving the 
social needs of the individual. 

Recently, however, the ponderous rolls of these organizations have overwhelmed 
those who are attempting to coordinate the activities of the several societies. 
Selectivity, faculty-approved, has been adopted by the three men's groups as a 
solution to the problem. Organizations feel that close relationships between mem- 
bers as well as attempted club endeavors are ineffectual if the membership is not 
limited. They find it desirable to eliminate "dead wood." Certainly anyone who 
has ever tried to lead an organization can sympathize with this difficulty. 

Selectivity of various kinds is inescapable for the sake of expediency; colleges 
set a certain standard for their incoming students, and departmental and interest 
groups, honorary and otherwise, require specific qualification for their inductees. 
However, these requirements are based on ability and interest, likewise participa- 

The realm of social life is another matter. While everyone may not be able 
to qualify for Tri-Beta, Pi Gamma Mu, Green Blotter, Sinfonia, the Concert Choir 
or the French Club, each person should at least be permitted to choose the social 
life which appeals to him and to which he may contribute more than anyone could 
guess during Rush Week. Could not the societies regulate membership by dropping 
those who do not attend a required number of meetings or who do not serve on a 
given number of committees? 

Clubs who hand-pick their pledges fall prey to charges having to do with the 
undemocratic, morally corrupting and socially stratifying characteristics of such 
groups. One can cite examples where selective societies have fostered false values 
of personality and ethiCs. A definite inequality of social opportunity prevails under 
a policy of selectivity. 

It is unfortunate that there is no college rule forbidding discriminatory prac- 
tices by the societies, in order that every student who so desires may have the right 
to develop his personality in the social atmosphere of his choice. (JMK) 

Suggests Prom Solution 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

I should certainly hesitate to say that 
to have a name band on campus is the 
remedy for our suitcase college and our 
ticket to rank in prestige among other 
colleges. Rather let us be concerned with 
a more mature consideration having to 
do with school spirit on our own cam- 
pus. Let this idea of togetherness guide 
our feelings, thoughts and actions con- 
cerning decision about our own school. 

I personally am in favor of having a 
name band on our campus so long as it 
is financially feasible. I should like us 
to see an additional step forward to the 
state of a mature college atmosphere, 
that is, an end to this high school falde- 
ral of wearing formals, tuxedos and cor- 
sages. This is so much superficiality 
which means nothing other than added 
expense. Why not cut out the frills — 
suits instead of tuxes, cocktail dresses 
instead of formals, no flowers — dress 
comfortably, and pay more to have a 
really good band? This, I believe, is one 

way to show ourselves that we can be 
grown-up college students. 


Defends Economic Practices 

Mr. Riddle: 

1 wish to take issue with you on sev- 
eral points in your editorial in the No- 
vember 10th edition of La Vie. 

I must assume that your reference to 
middle-class people in a middle-class 
town living in a middle-class home is 
made to upper-middle-class people. I 
hardly think devoting one's entire pay- 
check to the budget just to make ends 
meet can be termed living in the lap of 
luxury. I'm not aware of a multitude of 
socialistic benefits provided for the aver- 
age working man by the federal govern- 
ment. If public schools and public high- 
ways are provisions of a socialis ic gov- 
ernment, either state or federal, then I'm 
all for it. 

An accurate definition of socialism re- 
fers to government control of the means 
of production of a state. I don't believe 
such a system has yet been advocated 
by any major political party desirous of 
gaining control of the government. 

Yes, life in America does come on the 
installment plan. How else is a man 
with an income of five or six thousand 
dollars able to buy a car that costs three 
thousand, a home for an average family 
that costs fifteen or twenty thousand, and 
still provide adequate food and clothing 
for himself and his family? No, money 

is not hard to come by if a man wants 
to put himself in debt to those people 
who are willing "to look out for his in- 


Having "someone" tell you not to work 
for three or four weeks is not quite the 
whole story of how a strike comes about. 
No union strikes without first taking a 
strike vote to gain the necessary ap- 
proval of the majority of its members, 
and it must give the company at least 
thirty days' notice of its intentions be- 
fore it strikes. Nor do I consider it just 
to say someone else got that raise for 
him when he sacrificed three or four 
weeks' wages while he was striking and 
maintaining picket lines to prevent com- 
pany "scabs" from usurping his job in 
the interim. 

In regard to the strike against the 
Pennsylvania Railroad, I believe the un- 
ion's grievance in this instance was not 
one of wages but rather was one of job 
security. It is interesting to note that this 
industry that has been fighting for its life 
in competition with trucking lines and 
airlines and has been aided considerably 
in its battle by financial aid from the 
same "socialistic" government you attack 
so hotly.

my part in understanding just what you

students. If you mean the G.I. Bill, I

Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt 

At the completion of a very successful season, the Flying Dutchmen have 
compiled some impressive figures. 

Vern Magnuson, on the strength of his 26-point burst against PMC, won the 
Northern Division Middle Atlantic Conference scoring championship with 56 
points. He was second in yards gained on the ground (598) and finished with an 
average of 4.9 yards gained per carry. 

Another standout for the Valley was Les Holstein. Les was third in the con- 
ference in rushing with 446 yards gained and a 4.4 rushing average. He also 
finished fifth in scoring with a total of 36 points. Holstein and Magnuson com- 
bined their efforts for a total of 1044 yards gained and 92 points scored. 

Other Dutchmen who were high in the standings were ends Hi Fitzgerald and 
Bruce Slatcher and frosh quarterback Wes MacMillan. Fitzgerald was sixth in 
pass receiving with 12 receptions and 133 yards gained. Slatcher finished eleventh 
with seven catches and 101 yards gained. MacMillan was third in passing with 
29 completions in 63 attempts and 258 yards gained. 

Coupling these statistics with a 7-2 season record results in a f ne season for 
Lebanon Valley.

also received a nomination to the squad. 

Magnuson placed on this honorary 
team after the game with Upsala Col-

score the only tally of the day.

hardly consider it a gift to exchange 
three years in the service for $160 a 
month to support yourself, a wife and 
child, and still pay tuition and other 
school costs. Without the Bill, many 
men would find financing a college edu- 
cation truly difficult, if not impossible. 

If you mean federal aid to land-grant 
colleges, I don't consider money wrong- 
ly-used when it lessens the tuition and 
living expenses of college so that not-so- 
wealthy people can have the benefit of 
higher education. Doubling the cost of 
an education at a land-grant college 
would defeat the original purpose of 
these institutions; that is, providing inex- 
pensive higher learning. Consider the 
effect on your own tuition at LVC if the 
friends and alumni of the college with- 
drew their financial support. 

At the present time, federal loans are 
available to college students at low inter- 
est rates. The loans may be paid back 
by the student beginning as late as two 
years after graduation, and payments 
may extend over as long a period of 
lime as ten years. 

Your apparent belief that "some day 
our progressive government will take 
everyone's money and put it in a great 
Hg bowl," to be passed out in equal 
shares, smacks of the Marxist theory of 
everyone working according to his ability 
and receiving according to his need. I 
can not believe that any system approxi- 
mating this will ever come about in 
America so long as Americans have any 
initiative whatsoever. The obvious way 
to avoid communism is to prevent the 
conditions that breed it. Keeping money 
in the hands of the consumer, whether 
by insuring adequate wages, social se- 
curity, or federal relief, is the best way 
to guarantee the existence of free enter- 

Adequate housing, guaranteed civil 
rights, free public schools, financial aid 
to higher education, government regula- 
tory agencies to prevent private enter- 
prise from throttling the consumer — all 
are means of alleviating the hot-beds of 
radicalism that breed communism. A 
progressive government that provides 
these measures and looks ahead to the 
problems it will have to face in the fu- 
ture is to be much preferred to an ex- 
treme form of conservatism that looks 
back with nostalgia to the "good ol' 
days" when the economic frontier was 
booming, population figures were not 
astronomical, and Karl Marx was an un- 
known German malcontent. It is my firm 
belief that Senator Goldwater could take 
some lessons from the new generation of 
progressives, as could his loyal follow- 



Lebanon County Alumni 
Congregate In Library 

The Lebanon Valley College Alumni of 
Lebanon County met in the audio-visual 
room of the Gossard Memorial Library, 
November 29. 

The meeting consisted of the election 
of officers, a report on "The State of the 
College" by Dr. Frederic K. Miller, spe- 
cial entertainment by members of the 
student body, and a social period. 

Mrs. P. Rodney Kreider, alumni sec- 
retary of the college, and Samuel K. 
Clark, president of the Lebanon County 
Alumni Club, headed the planning com- 
mittee for the meeting. 

Flying Dutchmen Complete 
Finest Season In History 

The LV gridiron squad, under the coaching of Ellis R. McCracken, has com- 
pleted its most successful season in its history. A look at the record shows just 
how far the Flying Dutchmen have advanced since football became a popular sport 
at Valley. 

The 1900 team numbered among its 
opponents such schools as Harrisburg 
High School (33-0), Carlisle (0-34), the 
Pennsylvania Railroad YMCA (0-16), 
the Steelton and York YMCA teams (0- 
26 and 10-0) and a present rival, Muh- 
lenberg College (36-0). 

Five years later, in 1905, Lebanon Val- 
ley spread out. It played the now power- 
ful Penn State team (0-23), Medico-chi 
(now a part of the University of Penn- 
sylvania; 6-0), Lafayette (0-72) and 
Oberlin (41-5). The season record was 
a poor 3-7. 

In 1914 the Valley gridders complied 
the finest record until this year's 7-2 tally. 
The final record stood at six wins, two 
losses, with a total of 234 points on our 
side of the ledger (as opposed to 22 for 
all the opposing teams). Only F and M 
and Carlisle defeated the Dutchmen (0-3 
and 0-7 ) . Among the teams which fell 

Valley Cagemen Prepare 
For Opener With Mules 

The Lebanon Valley basketball team 
began to tune up for the hoop season 
with two scrimmages against Millersville 
State College November 22. 

The Dutchmen chalked up two im- 
pressive victories, showing fair speed, a 
pressing man-to-man defense and accur- 
ate shooting. Exceptional performances 
were turned in by Hank Van de Water 
and Art Forstater. 

Also seeing action was Hi Fitzgerald 
who just reported from football. As one 
of last year's standouts, he is counted 
on to help Van de Water in the rebound

The 4-4 record of the 1922 Dutchmen 

included games with a powerful Penn 
State team (7-109), Army (0-53) and 
Haverford (18-14). Half of the four 
victories that year were at the expense 
of a hapless Juniata team by scores of 
37-0 and 40-0. 

By 1930, LVC was still knocking heads 
with the best of them, but usually wound 
up on the short end of the score. The 
'30 team lost to such teams as Penn State 
(27-0). Villanova (19-0) and the Quan- 
tico Marines (7-0). The season record 
was an unimpressive 4-6. 

Penn State Still a Rival 

The 1935 team was a powerful squad. 
It held Penn State to a 6-12 score and 
defeated the Universities of Dehware 
and Tampa 18-0 and 6-0, the latter game 
played on the away field. The final 
record was 5-3-1. 

The 1940 team, despite a losing record 
of three and five, proved it could take 
on out-of-staters as they drubbed Arkan- 
sas A and M in a game played at Her- 
shey. The two other wins of the season 
were over Upsala (27-14) and Blue 
Ridge College (6-0). 

In 1954 the tenure of Ellis McCracken 
began. It wasn't what you would call a 
successful season at 0-7, but in the suc- 
ceeding years Mac built the Dutchmen to 
their present powerful status. The years 
1954 through 1960 produced records of 
0-7, 2-6-1, 1-8, 3-3, 4-3-1, 5-3 and this 
year's 7-2. 

The football past at LVC is filled with 
ups and downs, but throughout the years 
the Valley teams have shown their ability 
to improve themselves. Mr. McCracken's 
advance from 1954 through 1960 is an 
example of this spirit. No small part of

A Question Of Selectivity 

by Connie Myers 

Pledges are notoriously the lowest form 
of animal life. Why anyone should be 
interested in such a low-level organism 
may be puzzling to many people. How- 
ever, to members of four campus or- 
ganizations the pledge is a very important 
being. Each fall these groups, through 
teas, smokers and other means try to en- 
tice underclassmen into membership in 
their circles. 

Traditionally at Lebanon Valley the 
only persuading to be done is on the part 
of the students considering membership 
in a social society. 

To some people this seems undesirable. 
The reverse method used by national 
fraternities and sororities seems more ap- 
pealing. With this method the choosing 
of pledges is done by the members of the 
organization. It is up to those desiring 
to join to show that they are worthy of 

Which system is best? The candid 
opinions of some Lebanon Valley stu- 
dents show several views. 

Linda Bell (Delphian) : 1 think the so- 
cieties should choose because there are 
too many people in Delphian. However, 
if they do choose it may cause a lot of 
hard feelings and create societies of 

John Adams (Phllo): Societies should 
be selective to a certain degree. They 
should choose the best workers and those 
people who will be the best for the or- 
ganization. In choosing they should con- 
sider objectively the merits of pledges and 
not let personal opinion enter into the 
decision. They should strive for im- 
partiality when voting. 

Delores Koncar (Clio): Semi-selective 
might be a good term for a better society 

Have Shopper's Blues? 
Then Heed These Clues 

Wondering what to give him or her 
for Christmas this year? It poses quite a 
problem, especially with that scant col- 
lege budget. 

For him, girls, try a little feminine 
strategy. If you're listening to his rec- 
ords, query him casually about disks not 
in his collection. Get him to talk about 
his favorite author some evening when 
you're not too busy in the library; he 
may let fall a remark about the book he 
hasn't read. 

Ask his advice about what you should 
give your brother or father, listening for 
clues to his tastes. Play the game right 
and you should have a list as long as a 
little boy's letter to Santa Claus. 

If all methods fail, think upon some 
of the following: the well-dressed man is 
always the happiest man — make him 
happy by giving him one of those inex- 
pensive but well-received sets of cuff 
links and tie clasps. The small pearl tie 
pins, incidentally, are quite popular. 

Neckties are always appropriate, and 
fortunately for you there are so many 
striking patterns and colors from which 
to choose. Pay strict attention to the lat- 
est slim ties. 

Hints For Male Shoppers 

Men, please don't forget that special 
woman in your life who is always happy 
to receive a thoughtful remembrance, 
whether it be large or small. Girls are 
made of sugar and spice — sweeten them 
even more by choosing a gift of your 
favorite scent of perfume. The tiny purse 
sizes are just the thing for them and for 
your pocketbook as well. 

To make that "kitten" even more soft 
and cuddly, present her with a sweater 
of one of the new blends such as orlon 
acrylic or fur blend. If she's the more 
intellectual type, find out what books she 
hasn't read or what record she must 
have for her collection. 

The spirit of Christmas has always 
been one of giving. The shepherds carry- 
ing their newborn lambs in their arms 
that first Christmas gave of their pov- 
erty. The Magi, bearing gifts of gold, 
gave of their wealth. God gave Himself, 
and this is the greatest gift of all, for 
when one gives of himself he gives not 
only the symbol of love but love itself. 


policy. They should not be extremely 
rigid in their policies. They should 
choose people who will take more inter- 
est and participate better, though. Such 
selectivity will help the organizations to 
be more active on campus. 

Tom Balsbaitgh (Kalo): I may sound 
prejudiced, but we think that getting 
nembers who will do our organization 
the most good will make us more ef- 
ficient and active. There is no use in 
carrying dead wood. We are considering 
second-semester pledging as well as the 
usual first-semester pledging. So far 1 
like this year's selective plan. It has 
been working well because we have few 
but active members. 

Hannah Pisle (Delphian): There are 
advantages and disadvantages to both 
sides since groups can get too large. 
Something has to be done. Either make 
the societies selective (and risk hurting 
some people who may be left out) or 
form more societies. 

Don Winter (Philo): Societies should 
be selective. A minimum and a maxi- 
mum membership number should be 
established. Everyone who professes in- 
terest should be carefully considered as a 
pledge, but it is necessary — in fact im- 
perative, in order to avoid cumbersome 
size — to be a little restrictive. 

Sylvia Bucher (Delphian): I don't 
think our societies should be selective. 
Selective fraternities are better on a large 
campus where they are needed to help 
students get to know each other. That 
Is not necessary here. There is no justice 
to it: you can't select people on social 
standing. Such a policy would place a 
stigma on some people. It is unjust that 
people who entered a society when it was 
non-selective should decide to change the 
societies' pledge policy. 

Dean Wetzel (Kalo): Although once 
in a while you will miss some good men, 
I think a society should do some select- 
ing. This has to be because so many 
want to get in. Under a plan we are 
now considering those who do not pledge 
the first semester can be recommended 
for membership the second semester. 

Jane McCann (Clio): If societies are 
going to be selective, we might as well 
have national sororities and fraternities. 


Adventurer Writes Of 
Easter Island Mystery 

by Thor Heyerdahl 
(Reviewed by Sandy Diener) 

Aku-Aku means "guardian spirit" to 
the natives of Easter Island in the South- 
west Pacific. This barren and isolated 
place is considered the loneliest island in 
the world. A curtain of mystery hangs 
over Easter Island, for found on its sur- 
face are colossal statues of long-eared 
men, wierd relics of a people who have 
vanished from the earth. 

When and how were these house-high, 
fifty-ton giants carved? How were they 
moved for miles without ^machinery? 
How were they erected? What toppled 
some of them over? What happened to 
the men who made them? 

These, plus many other puzzling quer- 
ies, are asked by the author, Thor Hey- 
erdahl, a man who will always be re- 
membered for his thrilling and danger- 
ous voyage on the raft Kon-Tiki. In- 
trigued by the mystery of the statues, 
Heyerdahl decided to set up an expedi- 
tion to explore Easter Island. Upon 
reaching the island he found a very 
small population, consisting mostly of 
natives, ruled by a Chilean governor, 
Captain Arnoldo Curti. A priest, Fa- 
ther Sebastian Englert, was the uncrown- 
ed king and the natives' best friend. 

After exploring part of the island, 
Heyerdahl and his party found that there 
was another secret to Easter Island. 
Caves were found underground which 
were very carefully guarded by suspicious 
natives. Exerting his influence, Heyer- 
dahl was able to examine a few of them. 
Revealing objects and fantastic clues to 
the skills and customs of the pale- 
skinned, red-haired, long-eared mystery' 
people were discovered in these strange 

Heyerdahl writes this fascinating story 
with vivid detail. He presents it as a sci- 
entific adventure, adding human warmth, 
excitement and suspense.

Freshman Solves 
Russian Problem 

Only one successful solution to the 
Russian college entrance exam question, 
submitted by freshman Carol Jimenez, 
was received by La Vie before publi- 
cation. The puzzle, as stated in the last 
issue, is as follows: 

There are two steel bars clinging side 
by side, apparently identical, One is 
simply soft steel; the other is a power- 
ful bar magnet. The problem is to de- 
termine which is which, using no other 
equipment or material. They may be 
pulled apart but can be placed in an- 
other position only once before an an- 
swer is given. What is the procedure? 

Solution: Touch the tip of one bar to 
the center of the other. If they cling to- 
gether, the one whose tip is touching is 
the magnet, since the greatest pull would 
be at the poles. If there is no attraction, 
then the bar whose center is touched is 
the magnet, since there is very little at- 
traction in the center.

Jazz In Review 

"Jazz Goes to Engle," Kalo's offering of November 18, was for the most part 
enjoyable and entertaining. The program was much more ambitious than last 
year's "Jazz Engle 6," possibly accounting for the fact that the sound was less co- 
hesive than in the previous concert. In addition, the program lacked variety. A 
single Latin American rhythm number featuring Terry DeWald's fine drumming 
would have added immeasurable appeal to the show. But while the band lacked 
the "drive" of former years, there were many high spots which contributed to an 
overall satisfactory presentation. 

From the first number, the saxophone sec lion proved itself the most coherent 
ensemble and cut its part well, especially in Now Hear This and Til Remember 
April. Unfortunately Opus in Pastels d.d not sound well rehearsed (along with 
several other selections in the program), but the fact that the saxes were hidden 
throughout this number by director Charlie Sharman proved more annoying than 
the misplayed notes. The band's leader seemed to feel it was necessary to stand 
in front of or as close as possible to each soloist or performing ensemble. This 
type of spotlight stealing is a mark of an amateur performance. 

Trumpets and "Bones Lack Unity 

The brass sections were too often uncoordinated and their entrances were 
frequently not together and erratic, as in Now Hear This, Strange and From This 
Moment On. Credit is due, however, to "Maynard" Lichtenwalter, whose lead 
trumpet was consistently loud and clear, as well as precise and generally in tune. 

It is regrettable that drummer DeWald did not have more opportunity to show 
his stuff. His support of the vocalist in both of her numbers was superb, as was his 
perfect timing in all the band numbers, notably Dane ng Puppet and Strange. In ad- 
dition to DeWald, some of Valley's finer musicians displayed good form during 
the concert. Nolan Miller was possib y the best consistent soloist of the evening. 
In addition to contributing some fine arrangements, his solo on Four Others was 
the only thing that saved that number from mediocrity. Waxworks was one of his 
finer efforts, as was /'// Remember April (possibly the best-played selection on 
the program). 

As usual, Tom Mann played a fine, creative tenor. While not as flashy as the 
fabulous alto of Harry Voshell, his work shows a thorough mastery of his instru- 
ment and a mature approach to music. Voshell was, by contrast, the showman of 
the band, playing with fine tonal quality and dexterity. In ensemble playing, how- 
ever, he also sounded like a soloist, riding too high above the rest of the reeds and 
destroying the balance of the sax section. 

Karl Smith's solo work, while far from the loud, driving, Ferguson-type of 
trumpet playing, was always controlled and, as in Bernie's Tune, melodic and 
enjoyable. Unfortunately, the band too often covered him up, as it did Miller and 
Bob Rhine (Now Hear This), who plays a fine, rhythmical bass. The other trum- 
pet soloist, sophomore Gary Spangler, shows signs of developing into a thoroughly 
competent performer. His ideas were both novel and interesting. 

Peggy Zimmerman Provides Pleasing Interlude 

The band's vocalist, Miss Peggy Zimmerman, would be a welcome addition 
to any stage, and appears well on the way to developing an appealing song style. 
Despite Sharman's everpresent appearance in the spotlight during both of her num- 
bers, there is little doubt in anyone's mind as to who was the center of attention. 

The band as a whole did it finest work in I'll Remember April, Laura and the 
Yardbird Suite. After this last number, the encores were an anticlimax. From a 
musical standpoint, the two Dave Pell Octets were tops. Jack Markert's Ferde's 
Surry provided comic relief, both in the combination of melodies and the choice 
of chords (wierd!). The long, drawn-out comedy act surrounding the "goof" in 
Early Autumn left many listeners in doubt as to whether it was planned (it was), 
especially after it was played nearly as poorly as an encore. Another notably 
sloppy number was From This Moment On. 

This year's version of the Engle jazz band would have benefitted most from 
the services of a good public relations man. With a totally irresponsible attitude 
surrounding the rehearsals, there were too many injured feelings. A leader owes 
it to the people in his band to maintain a high standard of business conduct at all 
times. When poor management results in the failure of a fine arrangement (Ron 
Fredriksen's Sound of Musk ) and mistreatment of the singers who agreed to per- 
form, not to mention the antagonization of other students and faculty members, 
the audience is likely to come to a peiformance with a preconceived attitude toward 
the organization. Whatever the cause, the band did not have the full en- 
thusiastic support of the audience at its concert. It is hoped that future planners 
of such a program will profit by this year's mistakes. (PHR)

Silldorff Takes Top Honors

First prize for superior work exhibited in the campus art contest was awarded

Hutchcroft along with the Sinfonia Chor- 
us will present many old-time favorites 
with choreography by the end-men. 

Highlighting the program will be the 
Cocoa-Notes, a barber shop quartet 
from Hershey, which has sung in na- 
tional competition in Atlantic City, the 
Zembo Mosque, and at various other 
places throughout the area. 

Tickets may be purchased from any 
Sinfonian for one dollar each. 

Debate Society Active 
In Meets, Tournaments 

Lebanon Valley College's first debat- 
ing society in several years has been en- 
gaging in meets and tournaments, accord- 
ing to Mr. Jesse Matlack, adviser. 

Debating the question, "Resolved that 
the United States should adopt a pro- 
gram of compulsory health insurance for 
all citizens," the team spent December 3 
at Temple University contesting various 
colleges. Affirmative team members were 
David Pierce and Sandy Hock; nega- 
tive, Bill Baker and Rowland Barnes. 
These members were chosen on the basis 
of ability and preparation by Mr. Mat- 

Loretta Schlegel was LVC's represen- 
tative in the discussion of "Should the 
Federal government have control over 
communications?" at this meet also.

Mr. Matlack is aiming towards a de- 
bating tournament, similar to the one at 
Temple, which would be held here dur- 
ing the second semester. On May 9, the 
society will sponsor a speech contest in 
chapel for LVC students. 

The club meets every second and 
fourth ' Tuesday at 7:30 in Room 27, 
Administration Building.

This Is Progress — III 

In Search Of Equality 

Those who support the recent trend in the United States toward socialism 
supposedly base their actions on a desire to give all people greater equality. Those 
who earn a higher salary therefore pay higher taxes; everyone should share accord- 
ing to his own ability in the expense of running the country. This is a fine, humani- 
tarian attitude. 

But the wheels of progress are so clogged with red tape that the people of our 
country who need help the most are left to their own devices while the government 
goes about handling everyone else's money. 

College student Jim Jones earns a sum of money, tax-free, during the summer. 
Every week his employer must deduct a certain percentage and send it all to the 
government as withholding tax. Then the government sends Jim a W-2 form, which 
he fills out and returns. Since Jim's status makes him exempt from paying income 
tax on his limited earnings, the government sends him a check for the amount which 
was withheld from his salary. 

This is multiplied by thousands of college students all over America into a 
huge sum of money spent every year on stationery, stamps, IBM computers and the 
salaries of all the men who keep the records and mail the statements. And this is 
only one example of government waste. Another is the fact that La Vie receives 
three copies, mailed in separate envelopes, of every report from the senators of 
Pennsylvania. One would be quite sufficient. 

During the Thanksgiving holidays, Edward R. Murrow presented a program 
describing the plight of migrant farm workers. The facts were not distorted. Less 
than 100 feet off a main route in New Jersey, about 20 miles from this author's 
home, there is a settlement of these workers. And these people will sit among their 
cracker-box houses and tell you that they didn't have homes half as fine in other 

These people consider themselves lucky to receive a dollar a day for ten hours' 
work. It isn't easy to support a family on six dollars a week. And they have no 
chance to improve their status since education is all but impossible for people who 
must travel frequently to find work. But compared to some of our big city slum 
dwellers, these people are well off. 

If the rise in socialism is the result of a feeling of sympathy for one's fellow 
man, the government should stop trying to manage everyone's finances for them and 
put the wasted money to better use. Before we can afford to regulate a person's 
handling of his income, we must first see that everyone has an income to live on. 


Collegiate Editors Comment 
Upon November Campaign 

Looking at the just-past elections, American college editors had many com- 

"A majority of voters . . . pull a lever and never know why. Is the democratic 
process being sidetracked by uninformed voters?" — CHINOOK, Casper College, 

In today's fast-moving world, lengthy United States presidential campaigns 
have become as outmoded as the Pony Express. Perhaps long campaigns were 
needed when the stage coach was the primary source of communication, but with 
mass transportation and communication today they have become a needless waste 
of time, money and energy." — BULLDOG, University of Redlands, Calif. 

"No one man can do the job of president alone. America does not want a lone 
symbol of security; rather it wants a leader who can combine the energies of many 
men into the vital force which makes and keeps the nation great." — DAILY OR- 
ANGE, Syracuse University, N. Y. 

"The electoral system we now have is based on the 18th century idea that each 
state would select its leading citizens to join with those from other states to elect a 
president. The people were not trusted to choose their own leader. Hence it was 
done for them by the electoral college, 

"The electors, however, soon became automatons, exercising no discretion at 
all and blindly following the party line . . . The basic advantage of the college 
(leaving the actual election in the hands of an experienced, learned group of elect- 
ors) has ceased to operate. Why then should the system be continued? — COLLEGE 
CHIPS, Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. (ACP)

Letters to La Vie 

Bedtime Story Gives Him Nightmares 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

I feel compelled to write this letter in 
response to the sudden flourishing of edi- 
torials in La Vie devoted to the fears of 
government theme. In the last issue the 
campus witnessed the emergence of, not 
one, but two junior Westbrook Peglers 
on the editorial staff of our college news- 
paper; this was too much for me to re- 
sist. Perhaps even Mr. Pegler would 
find their views embarrassing. 

Although I find much on which to 
comment in both "Bedtime Story" and 
"As Lambs Unto Slaughter," I will have 
to confine my remarks to the former 
for lack of space. 

Perhaps the most provocative state- 
ments in the senior editor's narrative are 
contained in his concluding paragraph. 
In Mr. Riddle's summation he states, 
"America needs a central government 
with the power to control its people like 
puppets on a string. America needs a 
father to tell its people just what to do. 
All this is necessary, because Americans 
have forgotten how to take care of them- 
selves." Come now, Mr. Riddle, isn't that 
a rather naive statement? 

Just how does one arrive at such con- 
clusions? Apparently beginning his nar- 
rative with the arrival of the pilgrims in 
the "New World," Mr. Riddle assures 
us that all men worked peacefully to- 
gether; "each one gave of his services so 
that the others might benefit." All men 
apparently "felt responsibility for his 
neighbors' welfare." With the division of 
labor into workers and supervisors, we 
are assured that "all still maintained the 
ideals of their forefathers." 

Suddenly, however, a mist covered the 
face of the earth and man changed. 
Management began to take advantage of 
the workers and laborers organized into 
"pressure groups" to demand more than 
five or ten dollars for a sixty-hour week. 
This was the opportunity for the real vil- 
lain to enter the picture. "Poppa gov- 
ernment" stepped in and ruined every- 
one's malicious fun by setting various 
standards and thereby depriving man of 
the freedom of starvation, sickness, 
sweatshops, unemployment, etc. 

The big flaw in the entire tale is, of 
course, the assumption of a sudden 
change in human nature, which makes 
the entry of government necessary. Man 
works together now; he has worked to- 
gether in the past; but now, as in the 
past, man will work with his fellow 
men only when it seems beneficial to him 
to do so. 

Government has played a larger role 
and will continue to do so, not because 
man has forgotten his responsibilities to 
his fellow man, but rather because he 
has accepted them. By allowing govern- 
ment to assume a larger role in the fields 
of health, welfare, labor, etc., man is 
showing a true concern for his brother. 

I would like to add that I believe the 
editors are playing a valuable role by 
presenting their views on such subjects 
even if I disagree with these views al- 
most one hundred per cent. It may 
arouse more interest in such important 
subjects on campus. 



A Rhyme-ful Of Thanks 

To the Students at LVC: 

Alas, alack and woe is me — 
I made the front page, in 
A black-bordered block, of 
The famous "Collegienne La Vie." 

An honor indeed and I am 
Duly impressed but you must 
Admit — that black box can be scary — 
(This thought came quickly: was I 
In a wreck or did I commit hari-kiri?) 
Heaven help us — this must 
Be my La Vie Obituary! 

Well, I read it and relaxed, 
My nerves not too greatly taxed, 
Your message of good wishes and cheer 
And said: "Bless them one and all, the 
darlings, the dear." 

To pen a rhyme for the La Vie 
One should be knowledgeable and astute. 
But hang poetic perfection — 
This is written from the heart, 
And I don't give a hoot. 


Order Of The Court 

The Harrisburg Sunday Patriot-News printed a small editorial entitled "No 
Comment," which read as follows: "One of the white mothers picketing a New 
Orleans school where Negro first graders are attending classes . . . said: 'How . . . are 
we going to stop them if the police are bringing them to school? This is getting to 
be just like Russia.' " 

In considering the right of the Supreme Court to hand down the 1954 desegre- 
gation decision, we will look into several factors leading up to the momentous de- 
liverance of the opinion of the Court by Chief Justice Warren. 

The Court could not base its decision on the failure of the "separate but equal" 
doctrine, the Chief Justice said, because in many cases "there are findings. . .that 
Negro and white schools involved have been equalized, or are being equalized, with 
respect to buildings, curricula, qualification and salaries of teachers, and other 
'tangible' factors." Rather, the Court looked instead to the "effect of segregation 
itself on public education." 

The very fact of separation of the races causes a feeling of Negro inferiority, 
the Justices felt, and this type of discrimination yields desecration of Negro person- 
ality, the effects of which are "unlikely ever to be undone." The Court referred to 
findings showing that the psychological effects of segregation tend to stunt the men- 
tal and educational growth of Negro children. Therefore, since separation denotes 
inequality, the "separate but equal" proposal is self-contradictory and unconstitu- 

Southerners in particular and states' rights politicians in general feel that con- 
siderations more basic than sociological and psychological effects are involved. They 
cite the tenth amendment to the Constitution as a guarantee of the right of individ- 
ual states to regulate education and all practices pertaining to education. They 
claim that the integration ruling is itself unconstitutional; to them the desegregation 
law is a sampling of tyranny — unwarranted federal intervention. 

A certain Arizona Senator, who cannot be overlooked, would contend that 
although integration is a desirable end, the means of attaining it must first be sanc- 
tioned by an amendment to the Constitution stating that students may not be denied 
admission to a public school on the basis of race. 

It is appalling that a citizen of the United States should see fit to utter cries of 
tyranny upon observing enforcement of the rights of a minority. Yet an inescapable 
question comes to mind as one reads about the elephantine problem of enforcing 
the Supreme Court's decision: Is the arbitrariness of a Federal ruling ever redeemed 
by the morality or desirability of that ruling? 

This query is just another version of the one which asks whether the end ever 
justifies the means; and the civil rights issue is only one field in which the question 
faces Americans in the coming decade. (JMK) 

Got A Nickle, Buddy ? 

They've said what this country needs 
is a good five cent cigar. It doesn't. 

What it needs is a good five-cents 
worth of courage from you. 

Courage? What's that? Hasn't that 
word vanished from the English lan- 
guage? Maybe. Maybe not. 

Have you got five cents to spare, bud- 
dy? Not the nickle of courage under en- 
emy bullets, not the nickle in the face of 
personal danger. 

A nickle's worth of character. 

Who's given a nickle on this campus? 
How about the person who condemned 
the stag parties? Or those persons against 
the junior prom expenses? Is that cour- 

No, that's belief. We've all got be- 
liefs; we all hold different opinions. 

Ever hear of the man who wanted to 
prove his courage? He joined every con- 
troversial "anti" group. Well, he ranted 
and raved, even succeeded in proving his 
physical courage. But he finally resigned 
from them all. He found out that cour- 
age isn't a joiner; it's a loner . 

Courage is proven when you get that 
lost feeling. It's the strength that over- 
comes the disappointments and the per- 
sonal disillusionments. It's a part of ev- 
eryone who wonders and then keeps on 
living with a purpose when there'i no 

Courage isn't a pillow; it's a pin cush- 
ion, filled with sharp spikes which hurt 
terribly, but at their points there's com- 
fort. It's comforting to have courage. 

Don't go out and fight the world. 
That's not the courage we want. Don't 
fight to be an individual just to be an 
individual. Live according to your own 
rules, and if they're the rules of society, 
you're on the right track. 

It takes a lot of courage to live in this 
world. It doesn't take much to exist. 

Can you live with yourself? Then 
you've got a nickle's worth of courage. 

And another nickle to give everyone 
you meet. (NHN) 

J£a Vie inquired 

by Connie Myers 

The students were nestled all snug in 
their dreams of Christmas vacations and 
gay New Year schemes. Perhaps Samuel 
Clemens Moore will pardon the parody 
from his famous poem since it is the 
Christmas season, the time of traditional 
benevolence and good will. 

On this the eve of Christmas vacation, 
our minds might be drawn for a moment 
from our private plans long enough for 
a last look at the Lebanon Valley cam- 
pus of 1960. 

Even before the arrival of the lights, 
trees, and snow of the Christmas season 
arrived, LVC was receiving gifts — a new 
dormitory under construction, repairs in 
some old dormitories, a new parking lot, 
a new infirmary and many other tan- 
gible and intangible benefits. We have 
much to be thankful for as 1960 draws 
to a close. 

If you were Santa Claus, what Christ- 
mas present would you give to Lebanon 
Valley College for the new year of 
1961? Some female Santas had interest- 
ing offerings. 

Marylin Shaver: A new, large chapel 
of our own.

Van de Water Sparks LVC 
Victory Over Muhlenberg 

Big Hank Van de Water dominated the last five minutes of the December 1 
season opener with Muhlenberg to lead Valley to a thrilling 73-72 win over the 

Play began with LV controlling the opening tap and going down the floor to 
score on a jump shot from the corner by sophomore forward Tom Knapp. Through- 
out the first half the Dutchmen dominated the play, led by Art Forstater's shooting 
and passing. 

Muhlenberg was forced into mistakes 
by the pressing man-for-man defense em- 
ployed by the Dutchmen, thus contribut- 
ing to the 32-28 halftime margin held 
by LV. 

In the second half the Mules jumped 
into the lead and held it until the mo- 
mentous finish that was furnished by 
Van de Water. With 1:12 remaining on 
the clock, Hank dropped in two fouls 
and a field goal to tie the game at 69-69. 

He then lost his man and drove to 
sink lead points. Not to be outdone, 
Muhlenberg drove back to take a 72-71 
edge with 17 seconds remaining. Once 
again Van de Water rose to the situation 
and scored the game's deciding points. 

Art Forstater led the team with 30 
points followed by Van de Water with 

LVC Hank Van de Water figures in a play 

early in the second half of the game with 
Muhlenberg. Valley later won with sev- 
eral close plays in the closing minutes of 
the game.

Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt and Pat Shonk 

This year's basketball squad is still young but has already supplied some thrill- 
ing moments. Included among these thrills are the last-minute win over Muhlenberg 
and the come-from-behind win over PMC. 

This team has displayed one or two qualities that could very well lead to a fine 
season. The first of these qualities is the team's ability to fight back. The LV squad 
never stops hustling. This hustle was shown most vividly in the Muhlenberg and 
PMC games when we trailed along into the final stages of the game. 

The other quality is the balance of the squad. Certainly there are players on 
the squad who stand out more than others but the loss of just one or two of these 
individuals does not put the team in especially hot water. In the Muhlenberg 
victory only two of the original five starters were in action at the final buzzer; in the 
PMC game, Hank Van de Water fouled out rather early in the game but Hi Fitz- 
gerald came off the bench to supply the needed punch to carry the team through. 

So far the team has shown good spirit and a lot of hustle despite its lack of 
size. This weekend they will meet a powerful Hofstra squad and their abilities will 
be put to their roughest test to date. (CB) 

Wrestling Preview 

The Lebanon Valley College wrestling squad coached by Mr. Jesse M. Matlack 
and led by senior co-captains Paul Longreen (177) and Dave Miller (165), will open 
their season on Saturday, January 8, when they meet Elizabethtown at home. 

The probable lineup for the first match will be Barry Keinard or Tom Kent at 
123 and George Weaver or Don Kauffman at 130. Back from a year of absence is 
Jim Reilly, who will wrestle at 137. Ron Beistline will wrestle at 147. 

Wrestling at 157 will be Jay Kreider and at 167, Dave Miller. Paul Longreen 
will fill the 177 position and Vance Stouffer will perform in the heavyweight posi- 
tion. Others vying for positions are Bill Burkett, Joe Clark and Mike Gephart. 

According to the coach the team can improve their 3-5-1 record of last year 
and may go on to have a winning season. On January 10 and February 16 the 
wrestling matches will precede the varsity basketball games. Also, for the first time 
this year one home match will be televised on Channel 15. (PS)

Cagers Take Early Lead; 
Beat Lycoming At Home 

LVC won its fourth consecutive game with a 60-54 home victory over Lycom- 
ing, Saturday, December 10. 

The game was generally slow and saw the Dutchmen leading from the opening 
moments, never seriously threatened. Hank Van de Water led the team in scoring 
with 19 points followed by Hi Fitzgerald's 18. 

Fitzgerald and Van de Water are run- 
ning 1-2 for the LV scoring honors with 
69 and 68 points respectively. Van de 
Water has led the team for two years. 

The first half of the Lycoming game 
found the Dutchmen in command with a 
27-21 lead. In the second half LV open- 
ed its lead to as many as 13 points only 
to have the margin closed by a last-ditch 
effort by Lycoming. At the final buzzer 
the score stood at 60 for LVC, Lycom- 
ing, 54. 

Hank Van de Water twice provided 
diversion for the spectators as he search-

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1960 


If you're like most of us, you'd take the job with 
the more tempting salary and the brighter future. 

Many college teachers are faced with this kind 
of decision year after year. In fact, many of them 
are virtually bombarded with tempting offers 
from business and industry. And each year many 
of them, dedicated but discouraged, leave the 
campus for jobs that pay fair, competitive salaries. 

Can you blame them? 

These men are not opportunists. Most of them 
would do anything in their power to continue to 
teach. But with families to feed and clothe and 
educate, they just can't make a go of it. They are 
virtually forced into better paying fields. 

In the face of this growing teacher shortage, 
college applications are expected to double with?:*, 
ten years. 

At the rate we are going, we will soon have ?. 
very real crisis on our hands. 

We must reverse this disastrous trend. You • ••in 
help. Support the college of your choice today. 
Help it to expand its facilities and to pay teach .r*; 
the salaries they deserve. Our whole future as .t 
nation may depend on it. 

It's important for you to know more about what the '**v.' 
pending college crisis means to you. Write for a 
booklet to: HIGHER EDUCATION, Box 36, Times 5quc<e

College Queen Contest 
Offers Giant Rewards 

The National College Queen Contest, 
to select and honor an outstanding 
American college girl is again underway. 
This year the National Finals will be held 
in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with more 
than $5,000 in prizes to the new winner. 

The competition will include a colorful 
Pageant in April of 1961. It will be a 
highlight of the Easter holiday celebra- 
tion which annually attracts thousands 
of college students to Fort Lauderdale. 
The National College Queen Contest 
Committee is planning the event in coop- 
eration with leading beachfront hotels 
and the City of Fort Lauderdale. 

The competition is a search to find a 
truly typical college girl who deserves 
the national crown. This is not just a 
"beauty contest." Only 50% of the judg- 
ing will be based on attractiveness, per- 
sonality, charm and appearance. Equally 
important will be scholastic accom- 
plishments, campus activities, hobbies 
and interest in community affairs. 

The prizes to the next National Col- 
lege Queen will include a two-week tour 
of Europe, visiting famous cities in Eng- 
land, France and Italy. She will also 
receive a complete head-to-toe wardrobe 
of high fashion apparel, and many other 
merchandise awards. If she is interested 
in the theater, the winner will also re- 
ceive a $1,600 scholarship to the famous 
Dramatic Workshop in New York City 
to study with Dr. Saul Colin, who 
coached such stars as Marlon Brando, 
Shelley Winters, Geraldine Page, etc. 

The National College Queen will also 
enjoy modeling assignments, network tel- 
evision interviews and a personal appear- 
ance tour. These activities will bring her 
added earnings, and will be arranged 
so that they will not interfere with her 
academic schedule. 

College girls in this area are now eli- 
gible, and may first become a Regional 
Winner. The regional prize is an all- 
expense-paid trip to Florida to compete 
in the National Finals. The finalists re- 
ceive round-trip transportation, accom- 
modations and meals at leading beach- 
front hotels in Fort Lauderdale, and are 
guests of the Pageant. 

A committee of hostesses and alumni 
of women's colleges will direct all activi- 
ties while the contestants are in Fort 

A coast-to-coast television program is 
now being planned to cover the Corona- 
tion of the new National College Queen. 
The program will feature each candidate 
and will pay tribute to her college and 

Each Regional Winner will also re- 
ceive a Citation Scroll, presented to her 
and her college in recognition of her ac- 
complishments. Judges will include a 
panel of distinguished educators to score 
academic and current events questions 
while other experts consider attractive- 
ness, good grooming and personality. 

Upon entering this year's contest, col- 
lege girls will receive a questionnaire. 
They will be asked to describe them- 
selves, their campus activities and their 
post-graduate aims and goals. 

Any college girl, who is officially re- 
gistered at this school and in good stand- 
ing, can enter the new contest. Class- 
mates (young men or young women) can 
also nominate a girl to be an entrant. 
Mail the name of a nominee to the Na- 
tional College Queen Contest Committee 
in New York. 

Entries are now being accepted, and 
college girls in this area have a new op- 
portunity to win fame for themselves 
and acclaim for their college.

At the upper left is one of the paint- 
ings entered by first prize winner Pete 
Silldorff. Entitled "Tree Design," it is a 
tempera work, done by a process in 
which an albuminous or colloidal me- 
dium, such as the white of an egg, is 

used instead of oil as a basis for the 
pigments. In the center is Silldorffs oil 
of a farm scene, painted in 1954. To 
the right is another oil of a more ab- 
stract nature. Silldorff also entered 
works in pen and ink and a hammered 

copper portrait of a horse. In the lower 
row, the picture at the left is an oil en- 
titled "The Journey," which earned a 
third place prize for Pete Riddle. The 
center pencil sketch is one of four por- 
traits entered by Jo Ann Whitman, se- 

lected by the judges as second place win- 
ner. At the right is Lynne Williams' por- 
trayal of a circus, which received an 
honorable mention award. The response 
from the students in this contest justi- 
fies making it an annual event. It is 

hoped that students will also participate 
in the annual art exhibit at the end of 
the school year, also held in the audio- 
visual aids room of the library. 

Modem Bowling Dates Back To Thiid Century 

Twenty-five million enthusiasts, sleeves 
rolled up, will step to the black line this 
year, sight hopefully down 960,000 shim- 
mering hardwood alleys at over nine and 
one-half million beckoning maple pins, 
and take dead aim on the dream of all 
keglers since the start of bowling history 
— a perfect 300 score. 

Maybe you know a Joe who vents his 
aggressions Saturday nights at the bowl- 
ing alley by imagining that the number 
five pin is a guy owing him money for 
six months now. The same general prin- 
ciple was applied with variations back 
in the 3rd century, when bowling as we 
know it began to develop in Germany. 
The difference was that the Germans 
took it out on non-believers: each pin 
represented a pagan, and if you were 
able to "kegel" (bowl) a good score, it 
meant that you were leading a good life. 

The next thousand years saw bowling 
balls get bigger, rules tighter, number of 
pins used more varied, and appeal of the 
sport more secular. You needed a good 
"eye" to get a "strike" in some parts of 
14th Century Germany, where you had 
the small target of three pins to aim at; 
but in other sections, the number ran as 
high as 17. Today the German (six 
Pound) Kegeln ball is aimed at nine pins 
set in a diamond pattern throughout Eu- 

If ever there was a spoil-sport, it must 

have been English King Edward II. Dur- 
ing the middle ages bowling had become 
very popular as an added attraction at 
weddings and baptisms. Edgy Edward 
was scared that "kegling" would replace 
the more military sport of archery as the 
English national game. With no thought 
for bridegrooms anxious to show off 
their skill, the king proclaimed bowling 
a "dishonorable, useless and unprofit- 
able" pastime. Parliament, knowing on 
which side its bread was buttered, out- 
lawed bowling. 

But you can't keep a good bowler 
down, and Martin Luther proceeded to 
demonstrate the truth of this axiom by 
building a bowling alley for his children. 
He found that he chalked up his best 
scores on nine pins, and this number 
finally became standard for German 
bowling. The Dutch colonists were wide 
awake when they introduced nine pins 
to America, where the game became the 
rage of Peter Stuyvesant's New Amster- 

Washington Irving's Dutchman, Rip 
Van Winkle, on the other hand, slept for 
20 years and dreamt that he heard bowl- 
ing balls reverberating through New 
York's Catskill Mountains. He saw a 
"company of odd-looking persons play- 
ing at nine pins. Nothing interrupted the 
stillness but the noise of the balls which, 
whenever they were rolled, echoed along 

the mountains like rumbling peals of 

America went the Old World one bet- 
ter with "ten pins," the standard modern 
United States version, thanks to a Dutch- 
man. The story goes that the city burgh- 
ers feared the popular sport of bowling 
would encourage idleness among the 
people. So laws were passed against nine 
pins, but the aforementioned "legal bea- 
gle" spotted a loophole. The laws said 
nothing about games with more or less 
than nine pins. So he added a tenth, 
which today we call the "head pin." By 
using his head he not only got around 
the law, the burghers were stumped — 
so many of their neighbors had taken up 
the sport "legally" that there was noth- 
ing to do but succumb to the intrenched 
popularity of bowling. 

Since the days of that significant 
breakthrough, bowling has steadily 
boomed in America. Today's bowling 
enthusiasts spend an annual $250 million 
on their sport — ten times the total major 
leagues' gate receipts in a recent year. 
Bowlers fire a variety of balls at a "mix- 
ed bag" of pins. Ten pins with a regula- 
tion 16-pound ball is the most popular 
US game, with candle and duck pins as 
runnersup. A recent survey shows that 
the rate of expansion in small-ball bowl- 
ing (duckpins and candlepins) is greater 
than in big ball bowling. 

Depicted here are the pins and balls used in the world's most popular bowling 
games. From left: rubber-band duckpin with three-pound ten-ounce ball, popular in 
Pennsylvania and Quebec, Canada; ten pin with regulation 16-pound ball; candle- 
pins and a two and one-half pound ball (a game in which the downed pins are left 
on the lane and utilized); German Kegeln pin, used for several different games in 
Europe, with a six-pound ball; duckpin with regulation three and three-quarter- 
pound ball, popular in Maryland, parts of Virginia and throughout the Southeastern 
states. The lanes for all these games (except the German ones) are 60 feet in length. 
The small ball lanes are all maple because of the speed with which the ball is deliv- 
ered. The ten pin lane is made of maple (20 feet) and pine (40 feet).

Music Moves From Spectator Sport 
To Everyday Activity In America 

"I hear America singing," poet Walt Whitman said a century ago. Today he'd 
hear not only singing, but the tinkling, tooting, scraping and strumming of the 31 
million Americans — one person in six — who play musical instruments. 

He'd be able to hear more than half the world's symphony orchestras in the 
United States. In 1900, according to information supplied by Broadcast Music, Inc., 
there were ten symphony orchestras in all of America, less than 100 in 1920, and 
more than 1,200 by 1960. 

Music to his ears might also be the 
sound of cash registers all over the coun- 
try ringing up do-re-mi. In 1959, the na- 
tion spent $50 million at the concert box 
office, $100 million in all as against $305 
million for all spectator sports. The box 
office "take" for concert music was big- 
ger than that for baseball. 

In short, Americans have good reason 
to blow their own horns, and 2,650,000 
of them do, according to the American 
Music Conference. An additional 28 
million plus play other instruments. The 
odds are better than one in nine that the 
next person you see in the street will be 
a piano player, about one in 40 that he 
or she plays the second most popular 
instrument, the guitar. The odds are one 
in 56 that you'll meet a string player, 
one in 67 that you'll encounter a wood- 
wind virtuoso, one in 78 that you'll pass 
an organist, and 138 to one that the 
next man, woman or child you see 
doesn't play the concertina. 

The score: twice as many do-it-your- 
self music fans as were around in 1939. 
Nine million of them are children getting 
school or private instruction, compared 
to only 2,500,000 a decade ago. That 
not all these kids practice unwillingly 
can be seen by the tremendous boom in 
school bands and orchestras. The bands, 
now numbered at 47,000, have doubled 
since World War II, while the 26,000 , .

ments, but sometimes for their buyers as

have recently blared forth hits composed 
by high school principals and element- 
ary teachers, by jazz musicians and by 
teen-agers, by an aeronautical engineer 
and by a gospel singer, by Juilliard- 
trained artists and single-string guitar 
pluckers, by full-time dance band musi- 
cians and by housewives, by famed show 
business composers and by one-time 
field hands. 

In the course of its research, Broad- 
cast Music, Inc., discovered more upbeat 
news about music in America; with more 
than 156 million radio sets in operation 
and the average family turned in 13.75 
hours a week, 1,145 AM stations and 
117 FM-only stations were broadcasting, 
as of May, 1960, 13,300 hours of con- 
cert music a week! 

Almost half of the 5,331 LP's now 
available on 428 monophonic and 160 
stereo labels are devoted to the works of 
contemporary composers. The opera 
world is singing the same tune. Almost

Steve Nolt Broadcasts 
us Music, News 
To Three Dormitories 

The prospect of broadcasting from 
LVC's own radio station is the dream of 
Steve Nolt, freshman. He's built a radio 
transmitter which has been received by 
students in Keister, Kreider, and Mary 
Green Halls. 

"Actually, it was just a publicity gim- 
mick at first," Steve explained. "We ad- 
vertised the jazz concert under the sta- 
tion call of WLVC, but it could accom- 
plish more than that." 

On the question of legality of operat- 
ing without a license, Steve stated that 
the intercollegiate transmitting rules per- 
mit such broadcasts. He then explained 
another point in its legality. "We used 
the 800 cycle — a station poorly received 
in this area, and the program could be 
heard only in the dorm it originated." 

"I played some music a couple of 
times, but I haven't used it recently. It 
operates on a tape recorder system," 
Steve continued. 

As to whether he'll be broadcasting 
again in the near future, he was not 
sure, but a permanent WLVC station 
would be an asset, he concluded. "Actu- 
ally, the cost of setting up this type of 
station would be around only $2500, and 
it would really add to the campus spirit." 

Valley Decorates For

Despite the burden of long assign- 
ments and numerous pre - vacation 
tests, LVC students have found time to 
transform the campus into a picture of 
Christmas which has been further en- 
hanced by the addition of snow. 

Decorated trees atop the dining hall 
and library (furnished by the college) 
and lights in the dormitory windows give 
an extra glow to the normally unpreten- 
tious appearance of LVC. 

More spirit seems to be shown in the 
girls' dormitories than in the boys'. Ev- 
ery lounge is made more domestic by the 
addition of a Christmas tree and some 
outdoor wreaths. Hyphen Hall even has 
a fireplace where the girls may hang up 
their stockings. 

The Christmas feeling becomes more 
evident with the exchanging of gifts, carol 
singing and dorm parties at which some 
of Santa's strange-looking aides have 
made appearances. 

The most elaborate holiday ornaments 
on campus are to be found in the dining 
hall. Trees, spotlights, angels and Christ- 
mas music present an atmosphere unpar- 
alleled. In this setting the annual Christ- 
mas Dinner is the perfect way to begin 
the final evening on campus before vaca- 
tion. (CH, SG) 

I've Got A Problem 

Professors Are Human, Too 

Our stern but lovable professors usually attempt to conduct their classes with 
utmost decorum, interlaced with intellectual types of humor. Nevertheless, the 
students are most often amused by certain idiosyncracies which the profs themselves 

are probably not aware of. I 

Associate the following remarks with 
the profs who frequently use them as a 
part of their natural speech. For ex- 
ample, have you ever heard any prof

3. Your mediocrity is showing, peo-

social, psychological and religious causes

8. Come on, lad, legato, legato.

15. Let's clear the building of all mu- 
sic and instruments. 

A score of 12 or more is excellent; 
ten or more is good and eight or more 
is fair. If you know less than eight, 
you may have been cutting too many 
classes. The answers will appear in the 
next La Vie.
